I am staying at Shana’s for the next few days. Left her alone for a few hours to go the As home game. The Astros were in fine form. The As were not. After the top of the 5th the Astros were ahead 11:0 and I decided to head home. My decision was reinforced by the presence of some junior “drummers” who were having a good time but making it challenging for the rest of us. And add Josh Reddick for the Astros in Right Field happily signally our outs.
By the time my BART reached MacArthur the As had finally gotten one run. As I write this, the game is not yet over with a score of 16:1. The team is just going to have to tough out the remainder of the 9th. I almost wish them three fast outs just to end the pain.
Seems to me there really should be a mercy call by the 7th inning stretch….
