9-9 with a 2.87 ERA is some tragic numbers, glad they picked one up for Javier.
It's crazy how little run support Javier has gotten this year
A strikeout that sent the bat flying to end the game is a perfect way to describe the 2022 Tigers
Magic number to clinch division: Biggio (7) and three to get into the postseason
Astros pitchers making hitters yeet bats...beautiful. It won't be the last time we will have low scoring games, probably in the postseason as well. But we do have the pitching to lock it down.
Pay the 👑 please.
They’re saving money so they can pay Framber
Tuck is a must extend for me. Pls don’t be cheap.
We’ve done a much better job overall at putting away the awful teams this year. Love to see it.
Oakland A’s have entered the chat
Javier and no run support, the Verlander special.
This game was like watching a movie where the main character was in danger but you knew they would win in the end anyways so I never felt uneasy.
Too much plot armor
Just a wanted to say, love our Astros. I'm 5 days out from finally trading my car in for a better vehicle and my tire tread separated from the sidewall on the highway, only thing that kept me sane is the day game we had, started 10 minutes after it happened and kept my thoughts good and calm. Have a happy afternoon, good evening everyone!
Good luck with your car situation!
What a whiff to end the ballgame!
Got the win on a lazy day, let's go 'stros!
Javier should never go back into the bullpen. Way too valuable as a starter.
He should totally go back into the bullpen for the postseason. Way too valuable as a bailout guy.
Does he have to be one or the other. Can’t they just do it on a we’ll see notice.
That's what bullpen is.
Right but does someone actually need to be designated bullpen or is it fluid. Like can you say okay you'll be waiting ready to go for games 1-3. If we don't need you then you'll start game 4
There is no bullpen designation. Pitchers can be used however we need to.

Nori looking mighty fine.
All hail Nori.
Can we put to rest the myth that Vazquez pitch calling abilities aren't as good as Maldonado? We just went 9 inning giving up only 1 run. Come on now. Maldonados defensive ability is overstated, Vazquez is just as good.
Granted I say that and then Vazquez goes 0 for 3 today smh
He needs more at bats to get his rhythm. I’d rather him get the majority of the starts the rest of the season and this post season as every run will be crucial.
Agreed. I wish he would start more games.
In the history of baseball, no team who has replaced their #1 catcher mid season has ever won the World Series.
Did they put a really handsome guy wearing a Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit jersey on tv?
I wish we could always play the Tigers.
Javier was throwing some nasty stuff today. They need to get some offense going when he pitches.
Bats were a little quiet today but did just enough to win.
Pitching continues to be top shelf. If we go all the way this year, it will be on the shoulders of our pitching.
It's a great time to be an Astros fan!
Finally Firing on all eight cylinders at just the right time.
Javier with a era of 2.8 , and a record of 9-9 .. astros offense have been such a let down while he plays.. he should seriously have a record similar to Frankie, but seems like we just don’t like scoring when he is on the mound… astros are probably averaging 2 runs per game when he starts
Pitching records are dumb. Never gonna change my mind.
The Astros whooped the AL Central this year.
Why is Chas' K in the Highlights?
Hoes hoes hoes. Mad mad mad
