I'm not really sure what happened in this game. Though I do know the Astros lost 4-1, and the go-ahead run for the Cubs was the result of a passed ball (which was actually scored as a wild pitch that I disagree with), I could not abstain myself from becoming occupied with other activities - such as discussing gardening techniques, philosophy, art, and the teachings of the great Masanobu Fukuoka. However, I was also simultaneously watching the Astros play a horridly long 4-1 loss which included a 6th inning that lasted nearly a whole hour and a sloppy play that made the game unwinnable from that point forward. If you know what I'm talking about, the game lost inning (GLI) was the 6th inning when the Cubs scored the 2nd run of the game, which was all that they needed to have won the game. Some of the good things that I noticed, however, was a fantastic play made by Jimmy Paredes at 2nd base, catching a low throw from Chuckie Fick on a fielded ball, and then turning to throw to first base to complete the double-play; as well as the triple down the RF line hit by Jimmy Paredes and the other triple hit by Justin Maxwell. J.D. Martinez saved a run by utilizing his arm-gun and throwing out a runner at the plate. Dallas Keuchel pitched 4 innings with 80 pitches, but he didn't have the opportunity to have a big 5th inning. For the rest of the game recap, I will utilize fan commentary - a style utilized by CRPerry13, which I do not claim as being my own.

Gawd I wish I was at the game. It’s so nice outside.

Interesting GameDay stat on Dallas Keuchel

Opposing batters hit .246 against him on his first 45 pitches, but this raises up to .280 off him after that 45 number of pitches (on his effectiveness as the game goes on)

Biggio and others in Luhnow's box don't seem to be watching the game

Something on the computers is more interesting

Keuchel does it again

Ground ball to third. On th throw to first , Keuchel takes off for third and makes it.

And finally, the gist of the gamethread,

This may be the first baseball blog where

more was written about physics and lawn care than about baseball .
