Wow, I thought I might’ve come close to calling it last night. Oh, by calling it I mean reverse calling it – you know, when what one sarcastically suggests could never happen actually happens – it’s a skill I have. Hernandez lasted 5 1/3 and only gave up 2 runs!
Of course, it wasn’t enough, because our offense only scored 3, and then… the ninth.
The Jason Bay homerun was hard to take, but the following homerun was harder. And the inside-the-park off Byrdak made me laugh out loud – not in a good way.
I’m gonna start attaching numbers to the ways we blow games. It’ll be a shorthand for all the myriad of ways we find to lose. That way blog posts like this one can be short and sweet. Blown saves will now be WAY #1 that the Astros lose games. If it happens again tonight, expect a post that says,
Ouch. WAY#1. Pirates 9, Astros 3.
