    Dang...Manea and Graveman always pitch us tough. I was hoping we'd miss one or both of them.

    Another LHP starter tonight.

    Manaea has a 2.70 ERA and 1.56 WHIP against us this season. We are getting on base, but aren't getting the big hit.

    The offense needs to stop getting shut down. Four shutouts last 21 games. Only one first 100.

    Liking the Astros pitchers. Offense gets it together and Astros can go streaking.

    Manaea sporting a 17.55 ERA last 3 starts.

    Stros need to regulate.

    He's the type of pitcher that has given the Astros trouble the last few years though. Hard throwing LHPs been a weakness (not as bad this season though).

    Astros reaching base, but not scoring.

    Good to hear from Shane Reynolds. One of my favorite Astros growing up as a casual fan. Seems to be a good baseball commentator as well
