Funny game. Fields gives up two and the only guy Roberts had left other than McCarthy -- who has pitched like 5 innings since June -- is a LOOGY who gets three outs and strands a runner and now could get the win.

Good job by Houston getting Verlander at the deadline, not a good job not getting Britton (they were supposedly close).

If that ball doesn't hit Diaz it's a walk-off. There was nobody even close to being able to play the ball in the outfield.

I would wonder if in the top of the tenth Hinch would have tried to bunt Guriel to third with no out if Reddick wasn't in such a slump. That would have been a huge run, but if McCann bunts, Gonzalez probably gets the IBB and then it's up to Reddick.

McCarthy with only six innings pitched since July 20, none in the postseason, giving up four runs.
