I think it would have been for one batter at most, two if he got the first out on just a couple pitches. Probably just to save the pen a little more. Glad it worked out the way it did, though.
Altuve has been shit. That certainly doesn’t help. I’m just annoyed that the Yankees lost half their roster and played better than they were expected to at full health.Dammit, you made me look. It's not surprising that a team that was just swept by the Cincinnati Reds would be losing to the Yankees. Something is up with the Astros (I guess I mean "down"), but I don't know what it is.
