Let’s try to leave the bed clean.

ETA: Nope, it’s Tucker third, Bregman cleanup

And let’s make sure we have at least a 9-run lead going into the 9th.

Hopefully that would stand up.

At least that would give them a puncher’s chance.

Altuve down on strikes
Alvarez down on strikes
Tucker rolls out softly to 2B

And we’re off. Sigh.

Good to know we’ll be held scoreless through 3.

Abrams leads off with a bloop single

And a leadoff saw-off bloop single. Here we go again.

Abrams takes 2B

Another bloop single makes it 1-0

A run on two hits that might have been hit a combined 80 mph

Two hits with a combined exit velo of 19 mph

The most interesting question is whether Hunter will make it out of this inning.

And now a walk…two on, still no outs

Already 19 pitches

Balk moves runners to 2B and 3B


The balk didn’t even matter because he hit the runner with the throw

And it’s 3-0

Might as well forfeit and save the pen

The more intriguing question is whether or not he’ll record an out. I’m guessing no.
