Apologizes if you were coming here for some in-depth analysis of the game tonight. Stop me if you've heard this before. The Astros score some runs and the starting pitcher pitches well enough to make the game interesting then the bullpen takes over and....Yup, they lose the ball game. At this point I think we need to create a template for recaps along the lines of: The Astros bullpen blows it and lose the game.

It would save our recap writers a lot of time and frustration.
