You are right. I absolutely should know better.

I humbly beg forgiveness of BBG and prostrate myself so as to hope my team is not punished.

Javier works around a double in the 4th but that pitch count is over 75 already. Just hoping they can get a sixth inning from him but it looks unlikely.

The Angels have collapsed defensively this inning. After an E6 loads the bases, Sandoval completely neglects covering first and Nevin immediately goes to pull him.

B4, pitching change, 3-1 Astros

Walsh never breaks his stare at Sandoval as he walks the ball to the mound after Jordan’s “single”…

That caterpillar on his lip may look hideous, but a player on a streak respects the streak.

Only a HR in 1 park lol

For some reason, that E6 off Pena’s bat was ruled a hit.

Chas fouls one off the roof
