Live GIF recap post:

1st inning

After struggling with some of the Athletic hitters in the first (giving up a leadoff homerun to Coco Crisp) Brad Peacock get's Chris Young swinging for strike three to end the inning.

2nd inning

Bob Melvin looks just a little crazy right here talking to himself.

3rd inning

Peacock finishes the third like he did the first with a strikeout, this time John Jaso. Peacock has five K's through three innings.

5th inning

A very forgettable inning for Astros pitching and defense. After several defensive miscues Rick Ankiel made a nice diving catch to limit some of the damage. Of course the very next batter hit a two run-single down the right field line. I'll take what I can get.

Not to be out down Justin Maxwell makes a nice sliding catch to finally end the fifth inning.

As Joe in Birmingham in the game thread put it, "Maxwell makes the routine sliding catch on the warning track to end the inning"

6th Inning

Astros get on the board. After a Marwin Gonzalez double, Jose Altuve drives him in with a single to center field.
