Open Thread: Game 5 - Oakland Athletics at Houston Astros (3)

Hey, remember when it was 1-0 and I was complaining that the A's should be ahead by more than that? Yeah. When the smoke cleared after a ridiculously long 5th inning; like walk the dog, make dinner, drive home from work long, the A's had put 7 runs on the board with the help of some bad fielding and some really bad pitching to lead the Astros 8-0. The Astros finally scratched a run across the board in the sixth inning, but it doesn't really matter, as Straily has recorded 10 strikeouts, a new career high. And we're really replacing him with Colon? Also, can we play the Astros every game? We go to the 7th; 8-1 A's.
