Reds 5, Astros 1
By Mr. Happy
One night after the Dominguez ninth inning heroics against Aroldis Chapman, which our own NeilT chronicled so musically in the game recap, the pumpkin returned as the Astros dropped a 5-1 snoozer to the Dickities against Bronson Arroyo, who improved his record to 12-7. The Astros opened the ball game by scoring their lone run, courtesy of a two out single by Justin Maxwell. Unfortunately for the Astros, the Dickities scored all the runs that they would need tonight with two solo home runs off of tonight’s loser, David Stefan “Bud” Norris, who hasn’t won since May. Bud’s road record drops to a grotesque 2-11 7.34, which, when compared to his 3-1 1.90 home record, makes no sense whatsoever.
What else is on Mr. Happy’s mind, you ask? Thanks for asking. I’m lonesome for my wife up here in Missoula and missing my DirecTV (and television in general since I’m without one presently), but the job is going great, so I have no complaints. I haven’t had much time for SnS during the day and haven’t been on Facebook in awhile either. Things change a lot when you become employed. Maybe one day I’ll have more time or at least the guts to log in while I’m at work. Not right now, though.
