Wasn't able to post during the game and couldn't read the thread, so was probably already disappoitned, but our base running outside of Tucker's tag-up, sucked.

If Springer is legging it out instead of watching his pretty fly ball, he ends up at third and we're in the 10th inning right now.


If Springer legs it out he is hung up between 1st and 2nd because Tucker was standing on 2nd tagging up.

At the very least Tucker gets to pinch hit over Diaz the rest of the series. Diaz has been garbage all postseason.

He did nothing with it.

Bregman saw no more than 2 good pitches tonight. Standing in stadium crowds now, but I'll fact check that later.


And I believe he had 7 balls that were called strikes. Hard to work with that.
Hard to work with, yes. But he's also been watching too many pitches, and he's getting too worked up over close ones. He needs to forget about letting balls go by and start swinging at pitches he can hit


I do believe he is letting those borderline pitches get to him a bit more than he should. He has not looked comfortable at the plate all postseason to this point.

He definitely needs to swing at pitches he can hit. I still can't believe he let that 2-1 center-cut 92 mph fastball go without a swing.

If Springer is on 3rd base the Altuve fly out likely scores him. He shouldn't be pimping a ball deep in the gap unless he is absolutely positive it is a no doubt home run.

He didn't get it tonight because of the L-L match up.

Correa needs to get it going at the plate too. He's become very one true outcome oriented. Home runs or nothing.

had 3 RISP at-bats tonight...posted 0 RBI


He had a nice hit in the 7th that would have driven in a run if not for a great play by their SS. Beyond that, though, yeah, he's sucked.

This is a horrible take. It was criminal for springer to not be on third.

Dude, the only way Tucker gets a hit is if a pitcher throws a fastball directly into that long ass swing. He can't see more than on at bat or pitchers will abuse him.

Like his speed and defense, but his swing is not good.

Isn't he pretty good against lefties though?

But let's not put this all on Springer. He accounted for 2 of the 4 runs tonight. I'm not going to say he shouldn't have been watching that ball, but there is plenty more lack of hitting with RISP to go around before we lay this loss at Springer's feet.

3 pitches to hit and tons of called strikes on and around the corners.

So would he have just run past Tucker? This is a very confusing take...unless you are saying George should have busted it out of the box AND Tucker didn't screw up by tagging? In which case I agree.

Agreed. He has let so many like that go right by him this postseason (ALCS and WS), though. Sadly, that last AB was part for the course since the ALDS.

It's almost like the tipped pitches from Glasgow have him thinking too much now. He was crushing the ball in the ALDS before that, he hasn't looked like a good hitter since then. Not comfortable at all

Bregman has to adjust and go opposite field on those outside strikes. If they are going to keep calling two inches off plate a strike do what Springer does with those pitches. He takes them nonstop and is guaranteed to get one in that location every at bat because that is clearly the current book on him.

Two plays hurt the Astros:

Springer watching the ball on the double and the botched catcher's interference.

Yep, so even when he FINALLY goes WITH the outside pitch, he still screws it up.

No bad calls. One bad swing.

I agree. No chance he would've come close to passing the tagging Tucker. May have trailed him by 15 feet but wouldn't have gotten hung up between first and second. He should have hustled out of the box. Having him on third changes the inning.

Tomorrow will be tough we need Vintage Verlander and somehow need to stop Strasburger from throwing a complete game

Need a solid game from JV tomorrow.

Really need some timely hitting tomorrow. It does feel like the bats are really, really close though.

Correa unlucky with the great play by Turner. Altuve just missing the double down the 3rd base line. Brantley hitting into poor opposite field luck. No one on base for Yordon in any of the ABs he got a hit.

Yep

Even those called strikes on the border aren't worth swinging because chances are your rolling over it or catching them on the end of the bat.

The great hitters watch strikes because it's just not worth the likely result.

I still have no idea how, with Springer on 2nd, that ball hit by Brantly didn't find open space. No way in hell the LF should have been shading that way.

They were lucky aholes is what it was. We put the bat to the ball all game long.

If that chart is accurate then the ingame box is definitely wrong.

Springer would have just passed first when the ball hit the wall.

Tucker was on 2nd.

The loss hurts, but I think we can all agree that Tucker's big time clutch performance made it all worth it. Great piece of hitting on the base knock to center field. Took second on a heads up tag play. Then uses his jets to score from second. Kyle Tucker represented all that is right about the 2019 Astros tonight.

In the post game Hinch said he didn't see Springer out of the box on the double. Boy is he gonna be pissed when he goes back to watch the film.
