Told you the ‘Stros would be playing again tonight while the Yankees are back home in New York resting their rotation. Rays did good.

  • Bottom 2– Single. Sacrifice. HBP. 3 RBI HR. Rays 3 – 1.

  • Bottom 6– Solo Shot. Rays 9 – 3.
  • Bottom 7– Error. Single. RBI Sacrifice. Rays 10 – 3 Final. ‘Stros lead Series 2 – 1.

Especially gratifying is it’s the big trade, Greinke, that goes down. Best team in Baseball? We’ll see.

Rays are plotting one of those “Bullpen Miracle” nights that are becoming common among teams who can’t afford to stockpile Starters to use as relievers in the Post. Works well enough during the season and is a regular rarity in the Playoffs, they’ll start with Diego Castillo (R, 8 Saves, 3.41 ERA). He made an appearance during the Wild Card where he threw 2 scoreless Innings with 3 Ks. He throws… Sliders, slightly over 50% of the time, He also throws Heat, 101 mph of it.

Justin Verlander (R, 21 – 6, 2.56 ERA) takes the hil for the ‘Stros. He’s had 8 years in the Post (including this one) appearing in 26 games for a record of 14 – 7. In 159.1 Innings he has allowed 57 Runs with 18 HR and surrendered 49 Walks to 175 Ks for an ERA of 3.05. He throws Heat with Sliders and Curves for variety.
