So what's happening in your world?

I didn't get to watch this game and only caught bits of it on the radio due to the fact that I spent 16 hours at work today. Because of that I'm not up much for doing the usual recap, so I'll be doing the recap with the help of tonight's game thread:

Brandon Barnes reminds me of Bryce Harper and Tim Tebow.

Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it. - Henry Ford

Lyles

with a 1,2,3 first inning.

It is what it is.

Lyles is working with his high-end FB tonight. Lets see what happens.

My first mistake was assuming you knew what I was talking about.

Tuve! Leadoff BB!

It is what it is.

More comments after the jump.

That lead didn't last long

Lyles looks good versus the 3-4-5...maybe he'll have a prayer in the 5th inning

Nice contact again by Francisco.

Pearce with a nice single off the end of the bat into RF.

Barnes pulls another Bogey and again hustles but for naught.

Alas, poor Yorick, I knew him, Horatio…

by linkxmalon on Aug 7, 2012 9:06 PM EDT

5 innings in the books for Lyles on a groundout to 2B.

by linkxmalon on Aug 7, 2012 9:15 PM EDT

NICE! Lyles strikes out Zimmerman with a cutter! 2 outs.

by linkxmalon on Aug 7, 2012 9:33 PM EDT

Aaaaaaand J-Max hits into the inning ending 5-4-3 double play just like that

by linkxmalon on Aug 7, 2012 9:41 PM EDT

Lyles forgets what happened the last time he walked Bernadia

And walks him again. Here’s hoping Espinosa only has one in him today.

Great play by MarWin to get the force on Bernadina.

Lyles got Espinosa to go after his pitch. Great job.

by linkxmalon on Aug 7, 2012 9:48 PM EDT

ALTUUUUUUUUUUUUUVE with his 23rd steal.

by linkxmalon on Aug 7, 2012 10:31 PM EDT

Uh oh it’s extra innings…..

by Woodlands'stro on Aug 7, 2012 10:59 PM EDT

Wait are they TELLING Wally to bunt?

What on earth makes them think Wally has any bunting ability whatsoever?

I just watched the most unbelievable high bar routine of my laugh.

jeeeebus

Astros, Belmont, 'Bama and Corpus Christi.

Wait, we're losing in extra innings?

I’m shocked.

Is this team snake bit or what? Ball takes freak bounce off 2d base bag, and run scores.

by clack on Aug 7, 2012 11:42 PM EDT

another day another loss

In Luhnow we trust!

by orangeblood kid on Aug 7, 2012 11:43 PM EDT

It is easier to take a loss when it is good baseball. Lyles did well. You have to remember there are only 5 or 6 MLB players on the club

My first mistake was assuming you knew what I was talking about.
