A very good game that has the makings of a wild card contender. Or is it a mediocre team? Definitely good enough to stay tuned. Ketel Marte had an inside-the-park home run that ended a bit scary at home plate. Adam Jones did his job and with 4 RBIs and Archie Bradley gave some new hope with a two-inning save. The Phillies are next and meaningful baseball continues.
I saw it as more of a last second, oops I should have slided or run harder earlier, type play. But fortunately, the throw home was a bit on the third base side.
I guess it has been a long-time coming during the unfortunate year for Zack Godley. There was a time when we had the Zack Zack attack. But it appears to be over. I guess we have a Zac now to continue the trend. Zack Godley deserves to remembered for his work these last few years. An easy guy to root for and deserves praise for his accomplishments.
Hard to believe almost they are only 2.5 games out of a Wild Card spot right now. Problem is their are quite a few teams in the thick of it. The only way to get it is to start winning a lot of games until the end. A .500 record will not do it.
All those trades last week are bringing in some new faces. Good luck to them all.
We are not talking about Zack Greinke, his career did not need salvaging.
The Astros are now third and Zack Greinke’s consistency is part of why they are so.
