So the Astros came home for two must-win games and allowed 1 run.

Astros head to LA and the Yankees head home.

Vegas has Dodgers favored 2.5 -1 to win the series
general consensus is they win in 5 games (same as they beat the Cubs) I hope series goes 7 games, but expect 6

Being knocked in the head would be too kind.

Minute Maid is so easy to get to from my house as well. Straight shot down 59.

CC Sabitica was definitely off his usual mark, and I'm glad of it. That throw to home plate tho...the 2nd of 2 great fielding plays by the Astros in the series. That throw had to be perfect and it was.

Yeah, 'straight down 59'..till it becomes one long skinny parking lot... (wife has a Dr appt every month off 59 near 610 on the south west side.)

That throw was very close to perfect (and pretty ballsy), but that was just half of it. McCann did an exceptional job holding onto the ball with the runner's spikes on his wrist.
