    Yep. They had the "Shadow Ball" episode of Ken Burns' Baseball on PBS last night, so good.

    Kansas City's a nice town, I need to make it a point to go to the Negro League Museum sometime post-Covid when the Stros are in town.

    Hasn't thrown more than 3 pitches to any batter

    Eta- Lookout!! Brantley is getting 5+

    Kikuchi reaches double-digit pitches in an inning (10)

    He walked Yuli on 4 pitches. They did make him throw 10 pitches that inning, so at least they're improving!

    Was ok with this lineup at the last minute and players shuffling around the other day.

    Not OK with it after having 36 hours to think about it.

    The 1-pitch out by Urquidy was an adventure.

    It's almost like the Stros didn't want it so easy.

    Let's have a long top inning here... 25 pitches

    Wooohooo a hit!

    Doubt Dusty's ok with it either, but he doesn't have much choice.

    That was a cool camera angle they showed on the replay of the Correa hit.

    Kikuchi got squeezed on 3 of 4 pitches there.

    Make this count, Stros

    No DPs and have productive outs

    I just meant Straw/Diaz at the top. Couldn't help the personnel...
