Astros @ Rays 4/24/23

Dubon leads off with a triple.

Pena K’s, surprise surprise.

Tucker lines out to left, Dubon scampers home. 1-0 Astros.

Bregman gets a middle zone belt high fastball 2-0 and fouls it off. 3-1 pitch drilled to left and gone! 2-0 Astros!

Abreu takes one middle middle for strike 1. Bounced ball 1. Bregman’s homer was the first homer Taj Bradley has given up in his career. Fouled off an outside-ish pitch, 1-2. 55 footer, 2-2. Takes up, full count. Slapped through the hole for a single between 3rd and SS.

Here comes the pitching coach.

Julks takes outside, ball 1. Slashed down the 3rd base line but snagged on the fly by the 3B.

Mid 1 Astros 2 Rays 0.

Nice to get to Bradley early for a few.

I’m in and out making dinner so I can’t do full PBP to start with.

Diaz grounds to Peña but Franco singles to center and steals 2nd quickly. 1 out.

Julks with a very unwise dive on Arozerena liner to left. Franco scores. Aroz safe at 3rd

He missed that ball by feet. No reason to dive for that ball.

Rameriz doubles into the RF corner. Aroz scores. 2-2 2 outs.

Good lord. They give him a 2 run lead and he just throws pus.


The lead was fun for a few minutes

That went off Tucker. Should be at third.

Not sure how the umps missed that.

Wasn’t a terrible pitch by Urquidy, nice job by the hitter.

Astros get a base runner after Meyers is HPB but can’t get anything else going.

Mid 2, 2 all


Bottom 2

Lowe takes ball one out, strike one poured in there, 1-1. Just low, ball 2. Fouled back, 2-2. Swings through a change up low, ponche! 1 out.

Bethancourt check swing, ball 1. Swings over a sweeper, 1-1. Low and in called a strike, woof. 1-2. Slaps a sweeper in to shallow right, Dubon playing up the middle and running forever AND RUNS IT DOWN! WOW! Full extension snag! 2 outs.

Margot takes strike 1 at the top of the zone, 0-1. Slaps a sweeper to Pena, easy out 6-3.

End 2, tied at 2.

Like baseball in a gymnasium.
