Last night it felt like we finally got to see the REAL Astros. How satisfying, how reminiscent, to see the Astros clobber the Dodgers in the last inning, piling on five runs in the ninth to crush Kenley Jensen. The old spirit was back. The win brought the Astros back to .500 and gave them a 3.5 game lead over Seattle for the second playoff berth from the AL West. Could this be the springboard to a great finish to an otherwise disappointing 2020?
Tonight the Astros go for the two-game sweep behind their best, Zack Greinke, a man who knows a thing or three about Dodgers stadium. The Dodgers counter with Venezuelan Brusdar Graterol, who has made seventeen appearances this year but has only pitched 16.2 innings, posting a 3.24 ERA. Are the Dodgers using the opener gambit tonight?
