Altuve- single to left center
Springer- 9 pitch walk
Correa- 0-2, then five more pitches, single to left   Bases loaded no outs.
Rasmus- grounder to second.  2B had to dive, only play at first.  RBI
Gattis- 6-3, RBI
Valbuena- 3 pitch K

2-0 Astros going to the bottom of the first

Big there w what we are often not good at - don't strike out, put ball in play for one run. Productive outs. Nice job by Rasmus and Gattis.

Escobar- 5-3
Zobrist- single to right
steal.  throw very high.
Cain- 5-3
Hosmer- 3u

Rain since the middle of Cain's atbat.  25 or 26 pitches for McHugh

I'm done with this, if anyone cares.  My nine-month-old needs attention.

So how long would the rain delay have to be to replace Collin?

According to Dark Sky, it's drizzling and will be clear by 9 PM. But I don't know if that's 9 eastern or 9 central. I'm in the ETZ, but I told Dark Sky it was at Kauffman stadium to get the forecast.

Sparks and Ford said it's usually around the half hour mark that things get dicey for the starting pitcher.

This is interesting: if it wipes out the SPs, do we bring in Fiers? McCullers? Does KC hand it off to their vaunted pen?

Speaking of which--and not to get everyone's dander up--, I was listening to the Jays broadcast earlier and they mentioned that the roof was closed, which was the decision of MLB. They said the Jays had never played a playoff game at home under an open sky.

Score one for Manfred, at any rate.

Curious - when would Ventura reasonably be ready to start his next game? Would his 42 pitches be like an in-between-start bullpen session, where he would be considered on 'normal rest' for a Sunday start?

6 batters, 6 strikeouts, they may be right (about the Cy Young part anyway...).

ETA: there was a walk in there somewhere... So 7-up, 6-down via strikeout...

Perez: flied out to CF (1 out)
Gordon: singled to RF (1 out, runner on 1B)
Rios: Rios walks (1 out, runners to 1B and 2B)
Pitching coach Brett Strom to the mound, McHugh stays in
Escobar: soft liner to CF, Marisnick with a good read/, and somewhat lays out to make the catch. (2 out, runners at 1B and 2B)
Zobrist: rolls over one and hits into the shift to Correa on the 2B side (3 out).

End 5: HOU 4, KC 2

Top 6: C(y?) Young still on the bump

Gattis: Lined out to the LF corner (1 out)
Valbuena: Walked (1 out, runner on 1B)
(Sipp warming up in the pen for HOU)
Carter: lined-single into LF (1 out, runner in 1B and 2B)
KC pitching coach visit to the mound
Castro: full count, reached for one and rolled over it, GIDP to 2B...

Middle 6: HOU 4, KC 2

Bottom 6: McHugh back on the bump

Cain:  Fly (almost) to the track in RF, Springer with the catch (1 out)
Hosmer: soft grounder to Altuve (or Altus via Tapatalk autocorrect) (2 outs)
Morales (2-2, 2HR) coming up, Strom to the mound to speak with McHugh - McHugh stays in...
Morales: called strike, swinging strike, ball, ball, soft liner to RF, Springer with the catch (3 outs)

End 6: HOU 4, KC 2

Springer: struck out swinging (2 outs, runner on 2B)
Correa: struck out swinging (3 outs), Marinick stranded at 2B

The only actual strike to carter was the second one.  Knee high fb. Really wish he took a chance on that one.

Meanwhile Castro stares at strike 3 right down the middle.

Meanwhile, the Texans were at the Indy 35 or 40 or something, 3rd-and-2 with 2 minutes left and 3 timeouts, down by 7. However stands back there for 5 seconds then lobs a ball down the middle that gets picked off.

Oh, and I flipped a coin and decided that AJ would continue to suck tonight, so I left him off my fantasy roster. Two touchdowns and 100 yards later, I think I picked the wrong coin.

So fine.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

Astronauts over Cows. Hallelujah.

McHugh getting Morales (aka the Royals offense) for his last out was my favorite part. Looking forward to watching this one.

Home field advantage? Don't mind if I do!

2 fine examples of postseason baseball from the Astros this week.

Damn fine.

Great start!  Now let's get greedy tomorrow!

Cueto's late-season performance probably has the KC fans a little apprehensive right now. Not that Kazmir's recent performances have me filled with confidence.

Game 2 is must win for the Royals now.  You know they don't want to face Keuchel in Houston to stay alive.
Goin' for a bus ride.

And the fox broadcast was much more palatable to me than the espn one.  I'd prefer one color guy (smoltz) but i doubt we're ever gonna see that again in a playoff broadcast.

I freaking love the idea that our young guys are having immediate success in postseason play. Altuve, Springer, Marisnick and Keuchel, just to name McHugh...

Dunno... I enjoyed Archer's performance enough in and of itself to give the thumbs up to ESPN (which is saying something considering he had to overcome Kruk...)...

Totally agree.   Much less hype.

I'm expecting great things from Kazmir tomorrow and I think Cueto is hittable.

I kind of enjoyed tonight's broadcast. The only thing for me is the constant strike out focal point, but I guess that's just gonna happen. I don't care how you win, just that you win. The royals only struck out, what, twice? And they lost.

McHugh is 29. He must be the oldest guy on the roster.

Nobody I'd rather have behind the plate right now.

From John Smoltz on McHugh's performance "He executed the "Castro" plan... what I mean is he never shook him off and threw whatever pitch Castro was asking for. Give Castro credit and McHugh, they had a really good idea what they wanted to do... and did it."

It's Jed Lowrie at (I think) 31, I think Qualls is over 30 as well.
He breezed him, one more time!

The Astros last 2 post season wins were to eliminate the Yankees in New York and the Cardinals in St. Louis.

Love.
Don't think twice, it's alright.
