Greinke has the mentality for this game. More than any other pitcher we have.

This.
This is the Zoo, Basketball, Baseball, NBA, NFL, and MLB. I have learned to just log off when things get tense, because certain posters take out their frustrations on the forum. I literally no longer even click on the Zoo. It is like that for days.

I remember feeling completely discouraged after JV couldn't close out game 6 in 2017...didn't think it would happen to us at that point. Well, we all know how that story ended. I have a similar feeling this year and it is set up the same way, so we'll know how this ends in about 11 hours.

Not feeling great about this game.
Our bats can't stay warm even. They hit great and take advantage of RISP.


Well, one time in the last 4 games at least.


Well, 3 times in the last 6.

Uncle Vern Lundquist is an extreme ground ball pitcher

He would play well in this spot

have there been any late lead changes in the series?

seems like whichever team is ahead after 5 innings...wins the game. Very little late inning drama

I think the Astros are going to need something big from Yordan or Correa to win tonight

Yea, it's been a very boring series from that perspective. G1 is the only game that was within 2 runs in the 9th inning. G3 was the only other save situation and that was a 3 run lead.

Grienke will go at least 4 if he has his stuff. Cole & Urquidy will come in at the start of the inning.

Harris, Smith, and Pressly will be used to get out of jams to get to the next inning for a starter.

Osuna will close the game. Only reason Morton went 4 in 2017 is because Giles was already basically told he'd never pitch in that series again.

Morton was also in a zone and LA wasn't coming anywhere close to getting to him

There are single tickets available even in the lower levels for face value.

Go check out the Astros webpage if anyone wants to snag some.

I found the secret to buying tickets.

Use mobile device and go to the website not the mobile app.

When you get on to the page with the best option buy button, just start tapping it really fast. It will close and try again rapidly. If it stops reacting. close the invalid information window then start tapping best seats again really quick.


I have gotten 3 tickets in 5 mins.
Says the guy who isn't even going. But props to you if you can get that markup on the ticket board.

4 of the 6 games never had a lead change at all. Games 1 and 6, Washington took the lead in the top of the 5th.

Its bad that I feel like even with as good a pitcher on the mound as Grienke, I have zero faith that we can provide any run support. I was hopeful after the middle of the series, but the bats of shut down again and we look completely lost.

it will be interesting to see if an intentional walk scenario pops up again for Hinch.

it might be a pitch-to-Rendon or Soto decision

or pitch-to-Soto or Howie decision

It also seems like we get 2 runs early in almost every single game but unfortunately that's only translated to 3 wins so far.

That's because Strasburg was amazing again last night. I have no idea how some do not understand that great pitching beats great hitting. Once he settled in after the first he was lights out and pretty much unhittable.

It should. We can't let Rendon or Soto beat us tonight.

I think we get 2 off max and then 2 from either Corbin or Sanchez and cruise to the 7-3 win. Double digit hits again.

I predict we will win tonight solely because Martnez is going to go ape**** manager 17D chess. Once Scherzer is pulled they are going to use every pitcher + Tyler White to finish the game. That's when we strike.

Nope. I've been trying on the Astros site for over 2 hours. I'm pretty much resigned to not getting one at this point.
