Game 1: scored 2 runs in 1st inning
Game 2: scored 2 runs in 1st inning
Game 6: scored 2 runs in 1st inning


Reminder to not get overly excited about runs in the first inning tomorrow night

It's the weirdest thing I've ever seen. Still getting opportunities after the first, but just not cashing in.

Well I'm not reading the 1900 posts. They'll get em tomorrow. Greinke going to come on strong.
You don't have to read them all, but you should at least read the last 430 posts.

But we carried a bat to first after a solo shot that put the game out of reach in the bottom of the first inning.

They need to find a way to mimic being on the road for the their pre-game experience before tomorrow night.

JV: biggest postseason choke artist in astros history.

Altuve: worst situational at bat I've ever seen.


Yep. Verlander is complete ass in postseason play.

Nice shot of weirdo Greinke with the hoodie there. Hope he has enough time to put all those bombs in the mail and send them off before the big game tomorrow.


STFU.
it's a joke, go wash the sand out of your vag.


The sand in my vag means Ill be even angrier come game day. It stays. So STFU and make your jokes be actually funny.
I never argue with a guy that owns up to his vag sand

Stras said he was tipping then started shaking his glove to keep from tipping after the 1st.

Strasburg said he was tipping pitches in the 1st. I guess that's the only way we can score.

So Straus was tipping pitches in the first?

This may be the most pathetic game i have ever seen the astros play
Agreed. It was an atrocious outing. Bottom of the 1st is all I can remember being halfway decent. Verlander continues the World Series suckage.

JV has looked scared to death the entire series...he is pitching around every batter and trying to paint the corners.

Just a real poor showing on his part.


Well said and completely agree

Just can't put guys away. Doesn't have that dominating stuff.
Living where I do, I hardly can catch an Astros game, much less where Verlander is pitching.

The times I have seen him here in post season and especially these past two starts, its like he's throwing BP. No movement or missing wildly. Pair that with some **** batting and boom, loss.

In case anyone really wants to beat a dead horse, look at the replay of altuve from last inning and where he was as he crossed the base.

Hint, he's in the same place Turner was and where almost all right handed hitters are on those kind of plays.

Not a review able play so glad they didn't change it, but the umpire **** the bed on that call for sure and bailed the pitcher out for his throw that tailed into the runner.


I must have missed where Altuve interfered with the defender trying to make a play, because otherwise they are not similar and each was called correctly.


I'm not sure you understand baseball very well, and you definitely don't understand this rule. For the runner to interfere, he needs to be outside the baseline or intentionally commit an act to prevent the fielder from making a play. If a thrown ball causes a fielder to enter the basepath and there is contact it's play on.

Yeah that was a chicken**** interview.

As if he just doesn't give up runs. As if no one should ever give up a run to the Astros.

And it took a gift to get Brantley in a bad AB.

Took a heck of a play by Soto to get Gurriel.

Those those are frustrating, but it's baseball.

Not this **** again. What were our offensive stats for the year again? Everyone must be tipping pitches.

I love Verlander, and I hope we keep him and Cole, but if we are choosing for the future we take Cole and trade Verlander.


Lol. They aren't trading Verlander.

Just very strange deal to see the home team lose every game and really never show up offensively.

Not to mention the dribbler that got Turner on base on the first.

Also I'm call Busch league bs if Scherzer starts tomorrow. You don't go from not being able to lift your arm to throwing WS game 7.

You figure it being a 3+ decade Houstonian, I would know better than to drop milk money on the game six at home.

Agree. Not because Verlander choked in another WS. Simply because of his age. Doubt we can trade him however. Doubt anyone wants to pick up that kind of salary for a guy that late in his career.

He's actually been a little shaky for the second half of the season so it won't be like tonight again

Zombie Greinke versus neck flare-up Scherzer tomorrow. Really, who would you pick?
