    Talk about the series here. Please no PBP in this thread. Unless otherwise noted all games are on CSN-H (for about 40% I guess).

    5-9 Scott Feldman, RHP vs. Wei-Yin Chen, LHP 6:05

    5-10 Collin McHugh, RHP vs. Miguel Gonzalez, RHP 6:05

    5-11 Jarred Cosart, RHP vs. Chris Tillman, RHP 12:35



    Hey look! Another Altuve baserunning error.

    Yeah... this team gives up far too many outs on the base paths. Not sure who is telling them to run/be as reckless... certainly doesn't seem like a front office analytical move.

    Nice to see Hoes get some good swings lately.

    Yeah, kinda wish I hadn't thrown Feldman in my starting lineup at 5:58.

    I hope I filled in adequately. In my haste to beat bobrek to make a comment yet another Alutve baserunning error, I did not include the important deets. :)

    This team's "situational hitting" makes me sad

    Sadly, my almost three-year-old daughter was in the recliner saying "Astros are my favorite!" I hate what I'm passing down to her. ;)

    The 6 year old and 3 year old are playing legos. The one year old is getting her diaper changed (not by me). I think she knows that her diaper and Altuve's base running can be described using the same word.

    Jerome Williams seems like a legitimately nice guy, but as a pitcher... ugh.

    That would've been impressive though.

    Bringing in Jerome Williams in a tied game in the 7th?!!?! WTF is Bo Porter smoking? That was the absolute dumbest decision I've ever seen in my years watching baseball. Officially on the Bo Porter is in over his head bandwagon! He can leave and take Jetome Williams with him!

    She like she the best because she knows I am not the one that will change the diaper.

    Astros baseball has become "how many games can we lose by one run and come up just short in?". These guys must feel absolutely deflated inside. Do they go around flashing the "L" sign as an inside joke? Win one game and start another losing streak! It's baseball and they have made it out to be rocket science. Can we get the MLB to spot us a run every game. Then, at least we could go on to lose in extra innings every game. ;)

    For some reason I'm seeing an old fashioned shoot out tonight. Don't see mchugh as a good long term bet but it's about time for a good offensive explosion

    10-7 stros

    He just needed to get that first one out of the way.

    Kid's gonna have a strong 2nd half of the season, methinks.
