Astros put up a 3 spot in the first, Urquidy 3 zeros and it’s 3-0 Astros after 3
I wish Straw would learn to be a slap hitter.
Yuli, Tucker and Straw all ground out
Stop hitting the ball hard and he’ll get many infield hits
He seems to have a better idea of the zone than many HPUs have given him credit for.
A steady stream of singles to right would be awesome for him.
He and Yordan have taken over the Reddick role of getting fucked by the umpire every other AB

Urquidy at 91 pitches, 9-1-2 due up, Stanek warming in the pen, does he come back out?
Also, happy birthday Jose Urquidy!
Yes, Urquidy for the 8th. Then Pressly.
Let him start the 8th but have Stanek ready

Alvarez flies out to center
Correa pops out to shallow left
Broadcast booth say it appears he’s done, but why not send him out for another inning?
