Julio Teheran had a great night to add to Freeman’s and the Big Club. 6.0 innings, 7 k’s, a walk, 3 hits, no runs… this after his 5.2 inning (pitch count) no-hitter last time out. That’s 2 of his first 3 starts after his promotion = no runs, low walks, low hits, high K’s.
Interesting strategy resting Heyward, Chipper, and McCann with Prado on the DL. Not many managers would elect to go into a game with no one from their everyday 1-4 in the lineup. Let’s see how this one plays out.
Hello from Turner Field – thanks for the birthday wishes, but that was the surprise – my 40th isn’t until October. I have sneaky friends.
Oh, and Usher Alan update: he’s on the mend and hopefully back late month.
On the contrary, I think the last two games are very encouraging. To me, at least. We clearly have issues playing on the road, but the Astros are not very good. Have to believe that its a very winnable series. I’ve been all over the place with this team this week, but I actually feel pretty good right now. That will probably change in 4 days.
