Missing a Grand Slam by... (Don Adams Voice)... This Much.

Would you believe... a run scored via a missed double play?

1-0 after 1 inning... That should be all Milone needs.

Tommy's got this.

Next batter... Home run... That's how you erase the good feeling of the K.

That was one huge HR by a really short player. DANG. That's kinda auspicious for Milone.

Speaking of auspicious, I read in the newspaper today that no team but the Twins would give Milone a spot in the starting rotation....

Unspectacular Escobar makes a nice play in the hole.

Interesting first inning. Malone can sure pitch down and away. :)

Parmelee will get a fair shot for the remainder of the year.

His height is perfect for the Astros.They have a "Five Seven Grille" at the ballpark, named in honor of their Killer B's.

Its not very often that Escobar towers over another player, but he does over Altuve.

Lineup Change Again: So I guess they flip-flopped Schafer (LF) and Parmelee (RF).
