The Astros were able to outlast the Rangers last night to make it 3 in a row and help stay ahead of the A’s, who defeated Minnesota in a comeback win last night. It’s good to see some better baseball being played in the last three games after looking a little out of it to start the second half. Hopefully they can keep it going and earn a series win tonight so they don’t have to play behind the eight ball for a series loss on Sunday. In the meantime, find me some links to post and let’s get the weekend started!
The rules are simple for the potluck: We want you to find a good baseball story and post a link to it in the comments. So long as the story is appropriate, we’ll put it in the body of the article for everyone to read and give credit to the person who posted it. I’ll check back in from time to time to add new links posted in comments, so if you’re not in the first round or two, feel free to post anyways.
That’s it! Now let’s get cooking!
