The Astros could not score even one run in the 10 to nothing shellacking they got courtesy of the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday night. Worse than that they didn’t get a hit or a walk either. The bums didn’t even put a guy on base via a fielding or throwing error on the Giants, or by blocking a pitch with a rib or thigh. That’s right, the Astros sent a man to the plate 3 times each inning for 9 innings and the guy pitching for the Giants sent each one back to the dugout in the same order in which they appeared.
The pitcher for the Giants used his powerful right arm to employ the strikeout method and sent 14 of the Astros back to the dugout from their attempts at the plate. The other 13 batters made non strikeout outs. After the game there were nothing but zeroes on the scoreboard for the Astros, zero runs, zero hits, and zero errors. But the Giants had 10 runs, 15 hits, and zero errors. Also the Giants had 2 walks to zero for the Astros, So because neither team made an error, if you take away the runs and hits and walks, the Astros and the Giants were about even.
In an otherwise unspectacular game, the Astros did turn one DP and the Giants never even came close to doing that.
Here is my obligatory mentioning of Garlic Fries, Alcatraz, and Trolley Cars.
