Springer, Altuve, and Gurriel combined 0-for-11 and you still win.

How about the Mariners play a top-tier Triple A team best of 7. If they lose, they get demoted in 2020.

11-1 vs. Seattle with 6 games to go.
Might think about sending them some AL West 2019 championship T-shirts when it's all over.

As bad as the Mariners have been, they still sport a better record than either of the two bottom dwellers in the AL Central (Detroit and KC) and the AL East (Toronto and Baltimore), and are breathing down the neck of the White Sox despite being swept the Stros this weekend.

They'd be well clear of relegation in any league.

It's the season of the haves and have nots in the AL, Rangers and Angels excepting.

the Mariners (47-67) actually had a 6-game winning streak from July 24th to July 30th.

of course it was against the Tigers and Rangers

Typical JV start. He's on point and getting no support
He's gotten enough support to lead the majors in wins.


His Run Support/9 is 4.96. The next closest starter on the team is Miley at 5.61. Cole is at 6.00. Verlander is 33rd worst in MLB. He's getting the wins despite the lack of support.
Looks here like he's 12th in the AL among qualified pitchers at 5.93 runs per 9 IP.

He has also had four 3-HR allowed outings and only has 4 losses total...and the fact that his record is still so good shows that the bullpen has done a good job holding his leads even when they are slim.

And again, he is alone at #1 in MLB in Ws and how much better than 15-4 can you be when you have given up 3 bombs 4 times and lead the majors in HR allowed?

This is one of those rare times as a sports fan. Your #1 team is rolling, they have something special brewing, and you can't wait until the next game. It doesn't happen very often (outside the trophy mecca of Boston, anyway), and you want to fast forward to the end but also stop time and savor each moment both in the same instant.

Good times, boys.

Does it seem like it's been forever waiting for Grienke to pitch?

Whitley started for Corpus tonight. Went 4 innings gave up 2 hits, 1 run with 5 Ks and 2 walks. Seems like he was on a pitch count cause he only threw 69 pitches

Barring a rash of injuries, is there any way we see Whitley in Houston this year?

I think he probably gets a shot with a September call-up. Having that kind of arm in your bullpen can be a hell of a weapon if he's firing on all cylinders.

No rush though, because we have a fairly deep bullpen at the moment.

Dodgers pitcher in the 8th had a huge zone, yet the Padres closer is getting squeezed badly.

Great play by hosmer to get the out at third. Then a dp ball that the second baseman bobbled and couldn't even get a single out of. Now Yates is taking 45s+ in between pitches.

Dodgers walk it off. Unreal. Can't overcome both poor umpiring and terrible infield play.

Man, I'm sure glad he's an Astro. He's awesome and I would hate him being on any other team
