Astros @ Royals, August 19, 2021

Stop the madness.

Diaz (LF)
Wilson (3B)

They’re facing Mike Minor, so naturally Castro gets the start.

Popup, soft liner to 1B, Yordan single,
F9 in the 1st

Need a strong outing from Garcia.

I can’t believe Garcia made that play.

Merrifield single, advances to second on a good bunt better play by Garcia/Yuli

Merrifield steals 3rd, slides into Wilson’s elbow and is shaken up a little

Fuck. When did Merrifield become the best player in the game?

Garcia promptly bounces a pitch, good play by Castro to keep it in front

How many steals of third base are the Astros going to allow in this series? It’s getting ridiculous.

I wish they’d pay attention to the runners


The sad thing is Garcia did check on Merrifield at 2B early in the Perez at bat.

Garcia dicks around, gets a full count and serves up the easy sac fly.

Non-competitive pitches.


1-0 KC

He might want to find the strike zone.

I’m probably a little more frustrated that I’d normally be after 1 inning of play.

Serenity now.

Diaz strikes out on 1 strike.

Diaz with a horrible at bat.

We all are pissed off right now. The Royals are a pesky team but there is no excuse for potentially getting swept by a last-place team in August when your goal is winning the AL.

After the second game in LA, the Astros have shown little interest in this road trip.
