Come on, be honest. You really didn’t think the Astros would win yesterday, did you? And you thought Dusty was crazy when he took out Greinke at 79 pitches. And furious when Framber walked his first two batters. Don’t lie.
But Framber Valdez pitched five, scoreless, playoff, innings to enter the lore of great Astros playoff pitching performances. Meanwhile, a George Springer seventh inning RBI single tied the score. Then three more scored in the ninth thanks to an Altuve RBI walk and Brantley’s 2-run single giving Valdez the win in his playoff debut.
Today, all America asks, who’s Jose Urquidy?
