Astros at Arizona, 9/29/23

JP France out with a family emergency, Urquidy taking his place

2b Altuve
3b Bregman
DH Alvarez
RF Tucker
1b Abreu
LF Brantley
CF McCormick
SS Pena
C Maldonado

P Urquidy


Stanek out as well. His wife is having a baby.

Family discomfort??

Uriquidy hasn’t pitched well this season but he has pitched well in big games before. Hoping we catch lightning in a bottle tonight.


Praying for his family, it must be bad to pull him out of a game like this.

Was my first thought. Has to be really bad.

I guess asking for Diaz when you could use as much offense as you can get would be too much? Gallen is fucking good and this will be a tough game.

Got my cigar and Third Man in hand. Ready to go!

If Gallen is going to get 2 inches off the inside corner, this is going to be a quick game.

Bregman with a 1-out single

Alvarez lines one 1,000 mph off of Mate’s forehead, score it a hit, Bregman to 2B

Two on for Tucker…

Takes a change up 3 inches below the zone for a strike. Jesus Fucking Christ, blue.

Tucker hacking, quickly down 0-2…1-2…whiffs at another pitch in the dirt

Strike two was a hell of a pitch.

Abreu grounds into FC

Astros leave a pair…what’s new

No score

Adam Hamari behind the plate, who is above average. But that doesn’t mean much.

I don’t mind a big strike zone as long as the Astros get the same one.
