New, 35 comments

The Astros are struggling mightily. As is the ability of TCB writers to stay creative and optimistic. So it's Twitter's turn to recap the action.

Duane Burleson

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.

And then Astros County didn't tweet for the rest of the game.

Clever.

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.

Woah, who let you in here?!?! Get out!

8th inning: Astros go 1-2-3 on three Ks. Chad Qualls works a scoreless eighth.

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.

One day, one day....
