Without even listening to any of the post game interviews, I imagine that this is one of those games that will get chalked up to "just not having it," "wasted opportunities," "pitches being made," etc. I can't really find fault in any of those standard lines because having been at the game, that was the feeling I had. The Astros got out to a 3-0 lead in the first, but things feel apart for the Astros when Geoff Blum was thrown out at home. After that, it was just clear that today, was not going to be their day.

NL Central Standings
With a three game set at Wrigley starting tomorrow, the Astros have an opportunity to reclaim the ground they lost to the Cubs this weekend. And that's what I will be focusing on for the next twenty-six or so hours.
