Luckytxn_1959

Finally over and we won a game Montero pitched in.


KikiFlowers

THANK GOD!


philfeelsgood

Aye.. Baltimore is kinda good. GG Fellas.


TheDuckshot

I wasn't worried /s


Meat_Mahon

The wins always end better……whoop…..whoop….


yobruhh

Luckily he swung at ball fucking FOUR


conker1264

Low key getting annoyed with these montero apologists, he’s awful


Thornton__Melon

Best part it was a former Ranger who got the last out


bigtice

Just a backwards day, if not entire series, against the Orioles -- Verlander still dominated until his unexpected removal due to calf discomfort, Yuli delivers in the clutch, another Breggy Bomb and the bullpen (excluding Montero to make us clench) shut the door. Another win for the good guys -- now let's sprint through the short series with the Rangers and get the hell out of August.


manofconviction

THANK THE FUCKING LORD


Cucumber-Jen

Thank goodness!!! 🧡⚾️💙


NOLA1987

Sweep? Denied.


wessneijder

LFG!


JasonLikesCTE

NO ONE SWEEPS THE ASTROS


YeOldeManDan

No one with a winning record at least.


manofconviction

(except the A's)


JasonLikesCTE

fuck i forgo that one


vathodic

Yes!!!


Cucumber-Jen

I can’t watch this


TangyGeoduck

I know limited options, but dusty would put will smith in to a moment like this?


Sicko_Mo_Bamba_Mode

thank god odor swung at ball 4 so this wouldn't matter lol


philfeelsgood

If you walk him.. You better also walk home from MMP.


Meat_Mahon

Too funny….salute!


AWall925

back to back appearances with bad luck for Montero


conker1264

“Bad luck” he’s just bad bro


44Yordan

Good thing the pitching decisions are not made by the r/Astros arm chair experts. No matter who we put in there seems to be no shortage of moans and groans… Just think if our bullpen did not lead all of MLB in era how much bad stuff would be posted here about our bullpen guys. They are what we have… they are who we are rooting for to succeed!


YeOldeManDan

I mean after the double nothing left the infield.


conker1264

Still gave up 2 hits


HtownSamson

Montero went from being our next closer to not making the playoff roster


Robj2

Obligatory winning run at the plate. But I thought Yuli had that when it came off the bat.


Robj2

He was just teasing us.


manofconviction

He could've just let it go to Altuve and this wild ride would be over with


Wacokid27

You gotta love this kind of excitement, don’t’cha, Monty?


JasonLikesCTE

I want off the Montero experience


yobruhh

Montero might be pissed now


philfeelsgood

Can we just end a game in a normal way?


DemSumBigAssRidges

Astros trying to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory...


yobruhh

Where the gold glove yuli at


dauberminer

It seems 9th inning bullpen drama is mandatory.


Sicko_Mo_Bamba_Mode

Pressly can't comeback soon enough


ReptarKanklejew

Montero 💩


Intern_Al

.110 xBA single keeps the Orioles alive, awesome


TangyGeoduck

Oh ffs


vathodic

Aww man....


JasonLikesCTE

🫣


Nildrogon

Orioles have been getting hits off pitches on the outside edge. Somebody teach our guys that.


pantiesdrawer

Isn't that where the ss is supposed to stand?


KikiFlowers

Fucking hell Montero.


conker1264

Remind me why people want to resign this bum


manofconviction

I have no words


dauberminer

Blue's been calling the corners all game, high and low. At least he's been consistent.


vathodic

FUCK


JasonLikesCTE

Jesus christ


TangyGeoduck

~~One more strike~~ Nope


Nildrogon

Thanks for being consistently bad blue.


manofconviction

Zone has been so ass but I think it saved us today


Luckytxn_1959

Wow it looked like he may have been out after seeing replay once.


conker1264

Montero with the nail biter


Small_Custard_8652

That slide lol


reesemack

Prostate-checked by the bag.


Luckytxn_1959

Oh no... it's Montero...


omgdiaf

Thank the baseball gods that Martinez is back.


vathodic

Mitsubishi Montero warming up!!!


neildmaster

Someone tell me about this Dubon, Gurriel, Bregman double play! WTF?


Cucumber-Jen

It was awesome! Gotta find video.


gulfside13

i tuned in right as Breggy hit his hr and now Tuck is on too. Beautiful timing


pantiesdrawer

It's been 3 years since I've seen Bregman take a high fastball deep.


Capitolphotoguy

Found that breggy bomb salsa at my heb in Austin finally today and cracked it open while ago…guess I’ll have to have a jar on hand the rest of the season!


aratingas

I have yet to see it in Austin.


Capitolphotoguy

I found it at circle c slaughter location.


aratingas

That’s literally the one I go to! I will definitely check next time I go, thanks!


vathodic

Is it any good? Haven't tried it myself


Capitolphotoguy

It’s not fantastic, but I’ve had plenty worse salsas out of a jar. Flavors are pretty good.


Luckytxn_1959

Tuck got me.


manofconviction

Finally someone throwing us some meaty bois


KikiFlowers

Breggy Bomb Baby!


Sicko_Mo_Bamba_Mode

Offense doing the things again 🥹

Awex Bwegmen


vathodic

Yes!!!! Bregs


codyxwillyumz

Ok we've all seen this Cadillac commercial thousands of times. Who the hell is that? It looks like a knock off LMFAO cosplayer. Am I supposed to know who that person is? At no point do they let you know if this is an important musician or someone acting like one. "I gotta make a beat out of this!" What the fuck are you talking about.


vathodic

Bad bunny?


codyxwillyumz

Def not bad bunny, I'm going to see him at mmp this weekend! For reference, he is in a Cheetos commercial, and they use an actual recognizable song and spells out who he is for the audience as well.


vathodic

Just a wild guess...no idea who the guy is in the Cadillac commercial


Abject-Duck977

HRC breggy


bigtice

Nicely done.


Specific-Mongoose-93

Our bullpen sucks, also our bullpens #1 lmao


Sicko_Mo_Bamba_Mode

At least the bullpen has finally remembered to throw clean innings


bigtice

Bullpen definitely picking up the slack. You love to see it.


vathodic

Neris!!! 🤘

bigtice

The earlier part of his career was with the As and had his MVP season there.


manofconviction

Man that was pathetic Altuve


NateLikesToLift

Altuve has been a pretty un-clutch hitter with bases juiced. Career average in the .230's with bases loaded. Sucks but kind of expected at this point.


skeptoid79

It's hard to tell if that's Korey Lee's music I'm hearing, or if it's still the echos of Hunter Brown's.


Nildrogon

What a meatball. Changeup right down the middle.


conker1264

Fuck


Fly_Molo_23

Just saw JV only went 3 today. What happened?

fuck that hurts


Cucumber-Jen

Ouch! ☹️Poor Maldy, that looks so painful.


bigtice

What did we do to the month of August for it to hate us so much?


TexasHot

Bro what


reesemack

Oooooh, fuck.


Durty-Sac

HRC Altuve


Randygarrett44

What did I say? One hit can turn this 💩 around


reesemack

I hope the "hit" isn't Maldy getting hit. That's a super-bad HBP at a super-bad spot at a super-bad point in the season for a catcher.


Randygarrett44

I was obviously talking about base hits. Last thing I wanted was maldy getting drilled.


reesemack

I know you were. I was expanding on your comment which came before the HBP.


Seesaw121

Exactly Lol I feel like the majority of this sub are just Texans fans who watch baseball in the offseason. Clueless to how baseball works.


Randygarrett44

Lol who are you talking to here?


JohnnyBrillcream

I've only watched the Astros for a few day and new to baseball. Are the Astros supposed to hit the ball and score runs, they didn't do it the earlier few games? /s


ToastyMcloasty

They finally remembered that they’re playing baseball


KikiFlowers

THERE WE GO! THE FLOODGATES OPEN!


bigtice

I guess we're starting to remember that we should hit the ball where the other team *isn't*.


TexasHot

Time for a maldy blast


Cucumber-Jen

Nice Dubon!


conker1264

Seems like Mancini is either HR or SO


Seesaw121

I’m sure he apologizes for not being Juan Soto.


Specific-Mongoose-93

yeah... maybe theres a reason the O's traded him.


Speeder96

Yuli?


pantiesdrawer

Mancini is starting to get that Joey Gallo look.


DemSumBigAssRidges

K Mancini... if you will...


DemSumBigAssRidges

Yuli haters punching the air...


Specific-Mongoose-93

I said Yuli is still great.


Intern_Al

Yuli 2 RBI single is just how we drew it up


KikiFlowers

THERE WE GO!


Markezzy

Boy am I glad Yuli came through


thegoatishere

Yuli doubters punching the air rn


pantiesdrawer

We all want the best for him.


Saul_T_Naughts

Those aren’t punches but instead fist pumps


thegoatishere

I like that positivity hell yea


Saul_T_Naughts

Someone tell Yuli he’s not allowed to hit with RISP!!!


NOLA1987

Every now and again, Yuli comes through with the clutchness


[deleted]

Yuli might not be having a great season - I still feel good about him in clutch ABs w/ RISP


bigtice

Yuli giving us RBIs in the clutch? What is today!?


vathodic

Yuliday


NotInMyPrescience

PIÑA SAVES THE DAY AS EXPECTED


Cucumber-Jen

YES! Yuli!

IF NO ONES GOT ME… Yuli does?

Pineapple express!

Don't give me hope


vathodic

Finally!!!!


TheDuckshot

both eyes yuli


ty21411

Jesus Christ Mancini strikes out a lot


reesemack

Newsflash: all batters strike out a lot.


dream_team34

Mancini is at another level. 30% K-rate while with Houston! Tucker & Altuve, whom are free-swingers themselves, are at 15%.


donttouchthtmacaroni

We’re gonna blow this aren’t we Thank you Yuli, sorry I doubted


[deleted]

Is it just me or does it seem like mancinci hits way less every time there’s RISP


manofconviction

He just hit a 3 run bomb a few games ago...


philfeelsgood

Come on Dr. Trey


ToyCannon1982

What a bad pitch call from the orioles. Tuck was having trouble with his fastball so he throws him a hanging breaking ball.

I got me some Astros merch! Bought a hat off Fanatics and it fits pretty nice. I just wish I didn't get a million emails from Fanatics and MLB Shop advertising their products, even *after* unsubscribing.

Gotta make a separate email for commerce in today’s day and age

Seems so! Seems unsubbing twice finally got them to stop.
