Astros at Mariners, May 6, 2023

Pregame show says Brantley and Chas expected be back during the Angels series.

Uncle Mike is expected to play some 1B (Abreu has played every game so far).

Dusty said LMJ looked good in his last bullpen session.

Scott Servais continues to suffer from itchy, itchy hemorrhoids.

Until tonight. Hensley at 1st. Abreu as DH.

This is just the saddest little collection of banners.

Nothing in the first for Houston.

JP France has a solid stache.

Ks Rodriguez.

First batter faced, first K.

Nice sequence there for the K.

France on France violence: single to center.

First 10 pitches and 5 pitch types. That bodes well if he can control them.

For those who missed it:

Fell behind 3-0, then got him.

Meanwhile he bounces an 0-2 pitch that clips the top of Kelenic’s front foot.

This results in boos from the dumbass home crowd.

And he goes from 0-2 to a walk to load them up.

Not encouraging.

Big “if” in my previous post.

When will we see France vs Strider in the Porn ‘Stache Showdown?

Big K.

Got ahead 1-2 and finished him with high cheese.

Teoscar Hernandez has played in Houston, Toronto, and now Seattle.

That’s covering the continent.

He goes full and looks at strike 3.

France struck out the side, leaves em loaded.

Catch your breath, kid.

Needs stints in Miami and San Diego.

I’m sure JP was nervous as hell. Good job though after loading the bases. He looked like he had some electric stuff in spring training. I liked what I saw then and now. He’s got 4 pitches that if he can command them, he’ll be tough as hell to face.

Abreu walks to lead off the 2nd.

Tucker hits into a dp.
