Astros @ Mariners, 04june19

Miley looks sharp so far.

No hits, no runs for the Astros at the top of the inning.

Interesting route by Jake.

Good job keeping it in front of him, though.

Got fooled a little on that. Big swing, and the ball right at him.

Well, top of the zone looks massive too.

Moore works almost as fast as Miley.

Moore throws some fluttering upper 70’s thing. Looks like a knuckleball on the way to the plate. Curve is the same speed.

Miley with 4 k’s thru 2. Big zone is helping a bit. He’s taking what’s being given to him. Blue is consistent with both teams so that’s good.

Top 4 Reddick singles. Caught stealing just before Chirinos’ HR. But Astros take the lead 2-1.

Hilarious moment on the TV broadcast:

Blum and Kalas are talking about Orbit's birthday coming up, and then Kalas mentioned that Julia had been given a birthday gift in Seattle in one of the last seasons on her birthday.

Julia is trying to figure out what to call him, and just calls him Mariner (as in Mariner Moose), and Kalas and Blum immediately accuse her of being on a first name basis with the Mariner's mascot.

Airbnb. I was in Toronto last September coincidentally when the Astros were there. My trip was an unqualified success, but not really baseball oriented although I did see a game.

The Blue Jays would be a far more interesting team to see, obviously.

??? Not sure. I did slip on the bank and fall in the river yesterday. The dam broke upstream a week or so back and the flow has been much greater and the river deeper and wider. It really messed up a lot of Lake Dunlap riverfront property, since there isn't much lake there anymore.

Bases loaded double puts Mariners ahead 5-4.
Only one player is left on the Seattle bench - Murphy, three for Astros - Straw, Stubbs, & White.

Fisher drives one to right, Haniger makes the awkward jumping grab as it nearly got over his head. 113.8mph off the bat. Jake to 3rd.
Bregman sac fly makes it 11-5
Brantley singles up the middle for 28th multi hit game.
Yuli batting, Biddle wild pitch sends Brantley to 2nd. Grounds to short.

Devo has looked better but he got the job done thanks to good outfield play.

Still hanging too many pitches.

But his change up is sharp again.

The strike out was nice. Froze Santana.

Much easier to overlook that a walk was about the best you could hope for with White up.

True!  But it started a rally, was as good as a hit in that situation.
Nothing worthwhile comes without pain, ask any Astros fan.

Opps!  I thot it pointed to the 6th, not the "floods" in the 7th & 8th.

Imagine that you're an AL West rival and the Astros have more or less half their starting 8 on the IL and you see the Astros lead increasing.

I'm happy that the call-ups are doing well, and I'm grateful for the wins, but let's not forget that a lot of other teams have been making Seattle look silly for several weeks now.

Imagine you are Altuve, Springer, or Correa and you see your team doing so well without you....

Wow, sorry to hear about that.  Saw the story on the SA station to learn more.  I didn't realize that there were so many dams downstream of Canyon Lake, or that GBRA was so bad at maintaining them.

Airbnb. I was in Toronto last September coincidentally when the Astros were there. My trip was an unqualified success, but not really baseball oriented although I did see a game.

The Blue Jays would be a far more interesting team to see, obviously.

I did Airbnb in Toronto also.  Highly recommend that.  You can probably find a place on the Lake and walk to the game.  I wasn't overly impressed with their ballpark, but it was a fun game because of who I went with.  The Blue Jays were playing the Rangers and they also booed Odor.  It was great.

Wins are wins.  You play who is on the schedule.  Kick 'em when they're down, and never give away an at bat. 

Words to live by.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

What about the A's or the Red Sox or the White Sox?

I was wondering if Hinch thought that a six run lead in the ninth against Seattle was Rogers proof. He did and it was.
