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!
1st inning: Castro singles, Astros don't score. Tigers get two on a Miguel Cabrera two-run home run.

Who do you think Jarred Cosart wants the Texans to take with the top pick in the NFL Draft? http://t.co/gQEcyzOiwb— Brian McTaggart (@brianmctaggart) May 8, 2014
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.
George Springer now on a 7-game hitting streak. Let's hope I didn't just jinx him. #unjinxthejinx #Astros— Howard Chen (@ho_chenCSN) May 8, 2014
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.
Here's my favorite Astros fan photo from this year. It captures this year perfectly. #Astros pic.twitter.com/Dzb6ItzaZr— Sean Feist (@native_astro) May 8, 2014
Nicely done, Sean.

@joseph97pio @EvanDrellich It was Marwin, he was just playing on the first-base side of the 2B bag. pic.twitter.com/3xcd2GYlJs— Mike Fast (@fastballs) May 8, 2014
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.
