    He hasn't hit the ball well, but he's been on base a lot this series. Those are the kind of slumps you can live with. It sucks...but you can live with it. The guys that aren't drawing walks and constantly getting out is the frustrating part.

    Seems like we are on the verge of breaking out.

    How do you strand 7 runners in three innings? Unreal.

    If the Astros hitters aren't careful they may not be invited to the Christmas party at all this year!

    We're going to have to pitch a shutout.

    Tucker, take a pitch. I get he has the green light on 3-0 but the loaded bases with 1 out would put more stress on the pitcher.

    What a wasted AB by the Braves... . Astros aren’t hitting. It’s not the pitching. Thanks for the free out.

    Especially with Gurriel who has been money for his career with RISP and less than 2 outs. Guy from 3rd scores like 95% of the time this season with him.
