Guardians @ Astros, May 24, 2022

1-0 Guardians on a solo HR by Ramirez. After fouling off 10 pitches, got a meat ball right down the pipe.

Bagwell told him what to do.

It went called strike, foul, foul, foul, foul, foul, foul, foul, ball, foul, foul, home run.

Tip of my cap to Ramirez, kept spoiling pitch after pitch just waiting for a mistake


Great AB.

I like Bagwell in the booth.

I’d prefer to score more than one run tonight.

Astros early strategy is to not swing at cripple fastballs when ahead in the count. Let’s see if it pays off.

Astros go quietly in the first. 1-0 Guardians

Michael Bourn with the instructional video. I like it.

Alvarez pops up the first pitch he sees

Gurriel pops up

Tucker whiffs. He’s now hitting like .150 at MMP.

1-0 Guardians

This feast or famine offense is quite annoying.

The long slog of this part of the schedule seems to have caught up with them.

Literally zero interest in playing baseball so far.

Middle of three…1-0 still

It’s May. We’re not exactly in the dog days.

Peña didn’t put up much of a battle there.

Machete drilled for the Astros’ first baserunner.

Altuve breaks up the no-no with a single. Two on, two out for Brantley.
