Should have bunted Diaz in the 9th. Straw still scored to tie it and reddick ends up on second. The at bat by kemp takes on different meaning at that point.

tough loss tonight.

Bregman needs to start hitting to stay in the 3-hole
the last of the bohemians

If Verlander is up 2-0 tomorrow on 120 pitches, he should definitely go nine.

Two hot teams played a close game

You guys need to chill out.

this game also exposed the Astros pinch-hitting woes. Don't have much pop off the bench.

Straw, Jake, and Kemp were not good in their 3 late-inning AB's.

wish Tucker had gotten a chance at some point this season

We can overreact with the best of them.

Mr. Upton wins the rubber match tomorrow. Lead stays at 7.5. No worries.

What team doesn't have pinch hitting woes? It's likely your 3 worst hitters + your backup catcher. There's a reason why they aren't starting.

With our lineup we shouldn't have needed pinch hitters. Need a lot more than 2 runs through 8 innings.

If Altuve gets a hit with bases loaded this game would have been over.

That said it was one loss. Win tomorrow and all is well.

Diaz will be the primary pinch hitter once Correa comes back

Over a 162 game season you will have 3 or 4 games that you blow and that really sting. Obviously this was in that category. You can't sit on a lead in this league and that's exactly what happened tonight.

Yeah but this one hurts because it should have been won

The Framber blowout losses are easier to take the L on because you expect it.

In other news Correa had a good defensive play tonight

Ouch, staring to slowly go down the Ken Giles route . Joking but at least be a man of your word and stays take the questions

I think Osuna's issues are the same as Verlander's and Cole's...could be a Strom thing

I really do not get why they pound a slightly high heater on 2 strike counts.

MLB hitters have no problem crushing that pitch

Great parenting advice. Hey 18th month old who is all crying and being a little baby, and who only knows about 10 words "****ING SUCK IT UP!"

When the other team is happy to see the starter that last inning it's a bad sign

I initially interpreted that as "when they took him out." Can't really be sure, though

Anyone else watching the Yankees twins game on mlb network?

Crazy back and forth game. Chapman just walked back to back hitters up 1 with0 outs bottom 9th

Osuna has had some concerning outings. Hopefully he gets no where close to Giles-like meltdown stage.

It's concerning how many homeruns our pitching staff gives up on 2 strike counts.

After sleeping on it, I put last night's loss on Hinch. A few months ago we played the Red Sox at Fenway. Porcello threw a gem through seven and Cora sent him back out for the 8th. Springer proceeded to hit a 2 run HR and the Astros won. Cora took 100% responsibility after the game saying that Porcello did his job and throwing him in the 8th put him in position to fail.

I think Hinch let two factors that shouldn't be factors influence his decision:

1) Miley is by all accounts a really good clubhouse dude and he wanted him to get the complete game shutout
2) Hinch is trying to find avenues to give the bullpen some rest during the dog days

If we had a 5-0 lead against just about any other opponent, I think you could make a "sure why not" case to give Miley a chance to finish it off. But with a 2-0 lead against the only division opponent that matters right now, don't take any chances... get Osuna out there to start the inning.

Obviously it didn't necessarily have to end that way. If Miley and/or Osuna had done their job, there would be no issue. But they didn't. It's just one game though. Still love Hinch.

And I think we learned something about Miley last night that could come in handy later in the year. Cole and JV seem to have reserves in the tank when they push 100 pitches but Miley doesn't. When he starts getting close to 100 pitches in high leverage, time to get him out.

Actually I know it's lefty on lefty but Miley gets ground balls, when you have two on and no one put up 2 don't bring in a fly ball pitcher. I think joe smith or devenski would have been a better option there to guard against the hr a little bit

Funny thing is if he yanks Miley and Osuna still gives it up Hinch gets reamed for not sending Miley out.

It's a loss. Get over it. Move on.

BTHO em today and take a series win.

It's morning after my brother. If we're still discussing last night's game in August, you have my permission to call us out for not moving on.

Haha...What I meant was don't let it fester.

There's no underlying issues we need to iron out or big red flags that last night's loss raised.

It's just like any other of the 60ish we'll have this season.
