A’s @ Astros, May 21, 2023 Altuve: A New Hope

Framber going for the series sweep.


Ruiz grounds out 5-3 on the first pitch
Rooker flies out F8 on the first pitch
Laureano takes the inevitable first pitch meatball for a strike…strikes out swinging

Quick 7-pitch inning. No score


Bregman bounces into 5-4-3 double play
Alvarez hacking…works it full…strikes out swinging on the first pitch in the zone

Karpielian throws 14 pitches, two touch the zone. 1-2-3

No score.


Kaprelian can’t find the plate with a map and Bregman hits a weak ass 5-4-3

Jesucristo, Framber. You have a job on defense.

I understand how scoring works, but that should still be an E1.

He probably knows and just forgot for a moment.

Of course. But mental mistakes piss me off a lot more than physical ones.

Yes. All the time, every time.


Aguilar bounces to 1B, Framber forgets to cover 1B. Good grief.
Diaz strikes out looking
Pérez…3-0…3-1…lines out to LF
Langeliers taps out in front of the plate, Framber fields it and throws him out

No score

He’s very slowly getting away

Throughout that AB I kept thinking “if Tucker would commit to driving one to left…” and he did.

Don’t lean over the fence, lady.

Is Estuary Ruiz related to Rio Ruiz?




Abreu walks
Tucker flies out to deep LCF, Abreu tags up and moves to 2B. How about them apples
Peña flies to RCF, Laureano leaps, reaches over the wall and robs a HR. Fine play
Wild pitch, Abreu to 3B
Meyers works a full count, walks. Good at bat
McCormick, runners on the corners…quickly down 0-2…1-2…strikes out swinging

Astros strand a pair



Diaz, the other one, grounds out 5-3 on the first pitch
Allen grounds out 5-3
Ruiz grounds out 6-3

No score

Framber ain’t the only one not playing attention, huh, HPU?

At least he didn’t let two runs score on a foul ball like that idiot Jim Joyce.
