How about that game two, huh? So many dingers, so many lead changes, so much...Puig!

Puig rules. But, the Astros prevailed and tied the series at 1-1, which is lovely for those of us without a strong rooting interest, but just want a seven game series. So, heck yeah, more wild, extra innings games like game two, please.

The series shifts to Houston for three games in its dingus-ass ballpark with the embarrassingly short left field porch, train tracks with actual train full of giant oranges and/or pumpkins, and wacky left field fence/bump-outs situation. I feel like the team got rid of Tal’s Hill just to be like “Hey, look over here, we got rid of the most blatantly dangerous thing in our stadium, you happy now?” The answer is no, no one is happy, and especially not with the Houston Astros and anything they do. Except Altuve, of course.

So congrats on surviving yesterday’s off-day, for it might be the last one of 2017 depending how the next 3 straight games go. Live it up!
