Quintana started to jog off like he had punched out Correa. K-zone says he was right, but the ump disagreed.

 McHugh adds another couple of Ks around a walk, 1-0 mid 2.

My mistake - he struck out all 3. That's 5 through 2 IP.

Springer just misses a spectacular catch at the wall, results in a double for 2nd and 3rd. Springer appears to have the wind knocked out of him.

Correa ranges behind 2b for a liner up the middle, gets the out at first, runners advance. 1-1. Then a single to CF makes it 2-1.

Castro leads off the 3rd with a stand up double to RF.  (Note - standing up made it WAY too close for comfort)

Springer walks, but Marwin Ks after failing to get the bunt down, and two fly balls end the inning.

Astros with a blink-and-you-missed-it 4th. Still 2-1.

I'm watching Tom Gorzelanny take one for the team, facing eight hitters and retiring but one before he departs, with Happ shutting out the Tribe 10-0 in the sixth. Toronto is still hitting in the sixth.

Sox with a perfect 1 out hit and run. Hit right where Correa vacated to cover the bag.

A little regression for the Tribe this weekend.

Can someone explain how Marisnick keeps getting starting assignments.  Rasmus actually has a better BA against lefties than Marisnick. 

Marisnick should not be doing anything for the Astros except to pinch run and to come in as a defensive replacement. 
Boom!

Never heard that term before.  Better yet, it apparently also refers to someone who won't shut the fuck up.  Man, he is especially bad on a game where the bats are anemic.

Chickenshit warning by the ump after an extra Chickenshit pitch. Should've tossed him then and there.
