The Astros lost their fifth in a row. I don't really know what I can say myself so let's let everyone in on recapping tonight!

Astros have been outscored 28-14 in first innings this year.— Brian McTaggart (@brianmctaggart) May 7, 2014
2nd inning: Marc Krauss walks, but Houston doesn't score. Tigers get a runner to second on an overturned steal challenge, but don't score.
Translation: I don't want to talk about how bad you guys have been.
3rd inning: Marwin Gonzalez doubles, later scores on a Dexter Fowler ground out to make it 2-1, Tigers. Peacock 1-2-3 inning.
This is pretty cool.
4th inning: George Springer singles, but is stranded. Peacock works around a leadoff single.
Just put him in the Hall of Fame.
5th inning: Marwin walks, but Jose Altuve hits into a double play to end the inning. Peacock strands Kinsler after a one-out single.
Nicely done, Sean.
6th inning: Fowler singles, Castro hits into a DP - Astros don't score. Victor Martinez leads off the bottom half with a solo home run. 3-1, Tigers.
Marwin made that play to end the sixth inning.
7th inning: Krauss two-out double, Matty D follows with a single. Marwin drives in Krauss with a RBI single. Tigers get a runner to second, Josh Zeid comes in for Peacock and gets out of the inning.

The Astros are losing in the late innings. http://t.co/qp40ucfJ8K With a loss, they would be on a 47-win pace.— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) May 8, 2014
Woah, who let you in here?!?! Get out!
8th inning: Astros go 1-2-3 on three Ks. Chad Qualls works a scoreless eighth.
Robbie Grossman surely would have liked to have been afforded as many plate appearances as Chris Carter. Or anyone.— Evan Drellich (@EvanDrellich) May 8, 2014
Okay, that's a pretty good point.
1926 Monarchs vs. 2014 Astros. Who wins?
9th inning: Krauss two-out walk. Jonathan Villar pinch-runs and steals second and third with Matty D at the plate. Matty D strikes out to end it.

Hey jerk!.....OK, you're right.
