    2-2. Neither pitcher looking good early.

    This shaping up to be a nailbite series. Better matchup then I thought.

    Agreed Slasher. First inning wasn’t looking good for the pitchers but they have really calmed down and made this a pitchers dual.

    Seeing guys like Verlander and Scherzer I really hope Sale gets back to that level next year

    Big time. Wasn’t expecting this at all. Possibly leaving Houston with two wins.

    Verlander looks pissed they yanked him. Not much choice. Gave up a homer and a hit there and at 107 pitches. You did your job, let the offence do theirs which they haven’t yet this World Series.

    Suzuki got mixed up and thought he was facing a Red Sox pitcher. Remember how he used to always seem to come up with a big hit in games with the A’s? Man he used to kill us.
    The Yankees could go 0-162 and it wouldn't be enough

    He’s a competitor. Those guys never want to come out of a game and they really hate being taken out during an inning.

    In 1968, Bob Gibson was never taken out during an inning all year (not that there was ever much reason to). I think he would have killed Red Schoendist if the Cards manager had tried.

    Good point. It was probably the right decision. But then again it’s 6-2. Wow. This has totally gotten away from Houston. Maybe they should have left verlander in after all lol.

    Astros are in major trouble. Do you really want Grienke taking the mound in a virtual must win postseason game?

    Go Expos.

    Ya they’re screwed. Nats deserve this anyway. I’m ok with it! Astros lineup hasn’t shown up what so ever this series.

    8-2. I’m off to bed folks.
