2019 Junior League Division Championship Game 3: ‘Stros at Rays

You see, the thing about losing at Home is, after the game, you clean out your locker for the last time, then you go to your parking spot for the last time, get in your car and drive to your house.

You don’t even get 6 hours in an Airport to mourn.

I hope the Rays extend it a bit, if only to tire the ‘Stros out.

  • Bottom 4– Solo Shot. ‘Stros 1 – 0.
  • Bottom 7– Error. Double. RBI Single. ‘Stros 2 – 0.
  • Bottom 8– Single. Single. Cacrifice. RBI Single. ‘Stros 3 – 0.
  • Top 9– Single. Single. Wild Pitch. Walk. RBI Sacrifice. ‘Stros 3 – 1 Final. ‘Stros lead Series 2 – 0.

The Rays’ hope is Charlie Morton (R, 16 – 6, 3.05 ERA) who’s had 4 years in the Playoffs (including this one) with 8 appearances for a record of 3 – 2. He’s allowed 17 Runs in 36.1 Innings with 3 HR, 15 Walks and 35 Ks for an ERA of 3.96. He throws Heat (not as often as some) and Curves with an occasional Cutter.

The ‘Stros look to close it out early behind Zack Greinke (R, 18 – 5, 2.93 ERA), a 5 year Post Season Veteran with 11 appearances and a record of 3 – 4. In 67 Innings he’s allowed 33 Runs with 9 HRs and 15 Walks to 59 Ks for an ERA of 4.03. He throws less than 50% Fastballs and spreads his junk between Changeups, Sliders, and Curves.
