Odorizzi having a rough 1st.
Royals 2 runs on 3 hits, 1 walk, 2K
Jake threw 36 pitches
Let’s hope the hometown team has some fireworks today
Astros go 1-2-3 in the first
Altuve fly out to left on 1 pitch
Peña grounds to 3rd
Alvarez k on a foul tip (9 pitches)
We’re due for a stinker. It happens. I just hope it doesn’t wreck the bullpen for the rest of the week.
Korey Lee catching today
Gonna need to get three innings or so from Martinez and/orAbreu
Looking more like both. Odorizzi is gonna be lucky to get through three
IT’S A SHIFT!
It didn’t seem like that hit that got through on Alex was a ball a major league third baseman should olé on.
Three more hits (though one was a 50-ft dribbler and one was a 2-run routine chopper to SS), and two more runs. 4-0 Royals.
The answer to the question Are we going to get Great Jake first time out seems to be No.
Astros go quietly. 4-0 Royals
You’re really messing with my good vibes here Jake
You know, it would be more fun if the Astros scored some runs.
Middle of three…5-0 Royals
Just following on Gameday, but seems like Benintendi is having a nice audition to be moved at the trade deadline.
Now would be a good time for his first hit.
