What the hell happened this weekend in Anaheim? I thought next weekend was suppose to be me feeling the excitement of Barbie and the dread and gloom of Oppenheimer yet here I am this Monday afternoon feeling exactly that.
That’s the good stuff right there.
The Astros on the first game out of the All-Star break, of course got to face the greatest baseball talent to ever play in the history of mankind. Yet, once again the Astros touched up Shohei Ohtani. The MVP of baseball has to be sick and tired of facing the bad boys of baseball as he is now 0-3 vs. Houston. 4ER over 5 innings with Kyle Tucker and Jose Abreu leading the way on offense. Ryan Pressly shoved and a sweep was imminent with the Ace going on Saturday.
9-3. 9-9. 11-9. 12-9. 12-12. 12-13.
Those aren’t the numbers from that Lost episode in 2005 but the roller-coaster of scores you experienced Saturday night. I say you, because I turned it off at 9-3 then back on 9-9 then turned it back off 11-9 and oh buddy did I wake up to the last days of Rome on Astros Twitter. Brutal loss but one we won’t even remember a month from now.
Sunday Night Miracle
Hand up, I thought we were dead in the water. D-E-A-D. Five boombahs later and a diving catch, the boys were on a happy flight and secured a series win. Chas McCormick continues to prove he is a DUDE with TWO BACKSIDE BOOMBAHS. Meyers got himself one, Alex Bregman collects his first 4 hit game and he did it with a two out tank to take the lead, Kyle Tucker with batting gloves is Ted Williams and he got himself a boombah that went to Disneyland. Winning is fun, cardiac wins not so much but a win is a win.
