Hit the ball well but nice play at first to retire the Phillies.
Back to down one.
Bummer, if Segura had stolen 2nd that ball would have gotten by Mancini. Only reason he got it was that he was on the bag.It could have worked out the other way just as easily.
Not very good ab’s by Marsh or Bohm.
Marsh with just a brutal at bat. Got 2,3, 4 in ninth. Need a shutdown inning here.
So, Zambonir could have been calling the dugout and telling them what the pitch was going to be from what he just said. He was 3 pitches in the future....Just saying....

David Hensley singles on a soft ground ball to pitcher Zach Eflin.
3-2 game. and it's going on 4 hours. MLB should be embarrassed
Another weakly hit ball that goes for a hit for the Astros.
Baseball luck killing the Phillies. Schwarber gets that hit if the first baseman not holding a runner.

Martin Maldonado singles on a ground ball to right fielder Nick Castellanos. David Hensley to 2nd.
Astros finding holes.
Man the Astros get more fluke hits than anyone.
make contact and you at least have a chance as the last two hits show

Jose Altuve grounds into a double play, third baseman Alec Bohm to first baseman Rhys Hoskins. David Hensley out at 3rd. Jose Altuve out at 1st.
Wow! Incredible stuff from Bohm
Nice 5-3 double play to end the inning.
Going to the bottom of the ninth, down a run.
Hoskins and Realmuto have looked bad tonight. Both 0 for 4 with 3 Ks.
Time to turn that around.
Bohm has made multiple very good defensive plays in the playoffs.
Do that and you can have a 3 error game in game 5 of the season (or whatever it was) every year.
