In comes Valverde...out goes the win: Astros lose 2-1

Yeeeesh. Shut out going into the ninth. Roy O had battled. Geoff Geary and LaTroy Hawkins were solid. All Jose Valverde had to do was continue that trend. Nope. Ramon Hernandez was challenged, and he answered the bell with an opposite field shot to the stands in right field.

Besides that, there was little action in this game. Hitters battled, there were a number of nice defensive plays. Johnny Cueto pitched well. I sort of just feel blah right now. Like this isn't what was supposed to have happened.
