DAT 5/14 Rangers (Benjamin) @ Astros (CK) 7:10 CDT
Our good ole boys have fashioned a 3-game winning streak, definitely making their way the only way they know how.

Baseball purists and those who enjoy clutch, timely hitting had a difficult time watching last night's game.

Time after time, the Astros batted with runners in scoring position, and time after time the same result occurred.

But then our lord and savior Myles Straw used the one gift that God bestowed upon him as it relates to baseball and scored from 3rd on a clutch wild pitch. Rangers gonna Rangers.

Tonight, our resident loony bird Zach Greinke tries to get back on track after a series of rough outings recently. He hopes to make the Rangers his next victim. Hopefully, his breaking pitches and eephus pitch are dancing around all over the strike zone, kinda like Gene Gene the Dancing Machine

Here's to more wins...and to Yuli getting over whatever bug he has caught. Wins are fun, especially when it is multiple ones without a loss...

It's time to go get 'em Astros!

It was just time for the Rangers to go last night. Nobody wanted to see that shitty game go any longer.

The ending was appropriate for that sucky game. Perfect ending that a game where NO ONE can bring in RISP, that the winning run isn't an RBI. It could not have ended in a better way.

This is the 39th game of the season. This is the 21st time that the Astros will see a LH starting pitcher.

I don’t know the percentages of LH vs RH SP’s in the MLB but this feels like sort of an outlier

As of Sept. 2020, Fangraphs puts percentage of innings for lefty pitchers at 28 percent. Starters make 29 percent of starts.

In the event Greinke lurks here (seems like some shite he'd do), consider 100% more eephus

A well timed eephus pitch is one of my 5 favorite things in baseball.

I love all these gameshow gifs.

Whos the baw that said he was going to sit in the Michelob Ultra section? I am wanting to know how it was if he has gone yet.
