The last time that the Astros were swept on the road was in September of 2017, at the hands of the Oakland Athletics.

The Cincinnati Reds, their sweepers, suddenly find themselves only 5 and-a-half games behind the 1st -Place Milwaukee Brewers in the NL Central.

I know HR have been responsible for an ever ascending percentage of runs, but I still kind of did a double take when the announcers highlighted that despite his 36 HR allowed, Verlander let in only 66 total runs on the season.

I think it was Fangraphs that called it the luckiest season of all time.  Super low BABIP and sky high strand rate despite allowing a lot of hard contact.

Good call on pitching Verlander on 3 days rest Hinch. I'm going to be sick if this ends up helping the Yankees make the World Series. 

That certainly blew it up in their face. They will have all the pressure in a Game 5.

Maybe if Verlander were younger, but he is 36 years old. When I heard he was pitching tonight, I expected he wouldn't look sharp tonight.

He had poor command. 

Baseball is just a crazy sport. These 5 game series can flip in an instant.

That's what makes the baseball playoffs so unpredictable. A 107 win team can have one bad week and boom they are eliminated.

Right. I’m just saying saying how quick they can change. They are over when they are over.
