    Morton OUT in the 3rd. Ball hit back to the mound ended up swelling his ankle.

    1 leg for 1 win in the WS is a fair price, tbh.

    Some coaches and some players, specifically Jim Palmer of the late great Oriels have been adamant about finishing your pitch in defensive position / being ready to immediately get into defensive position after the ball leaves your hand.
    Too bad more don't apply the advice.
    Morton was not in position at all.

    Perfect beginning for the Braves. Scoring in each of the first 3 innings. It was a gamble to take Rosario the NLCS MVP out of the leadoff spot and down the order (5th) even with the righty/lefty split but it immediately payed off with Soler's leadoff homer.

    Astros countered by loading the bases but Morton escaped and then kept the Astros in check for a few innings.

    Then the injury. Braves will now be without their presumed Game 5 and 7 starter. But the Braves bullpen held only surrendering 2 runs in the next 7 innings.

    Altuve had a poor showing today giving the Braves Infield a significant edge today in performance. But Freeman was also only 1-3 with a walk.

    Morton's lose will be felt in the middle of the series but those games will be played in the NL forcing Astros to sit a bat. Can the Braves bullpen withstand til then?

    Astros bullpen also pitched well today but they are in need of a 2nd starter beside Garcia. Maybe Greinke?

    Astros still feel confident, brushing off the loss as their usual Game 1 defeat (0-4). But their expectation that they will simply out hit the Braves was dispelled today. Morton is a life line for Houston but they still need to find their own pitching.

    The Braves are the better-playing team right now, but the fact they're an Atlanta sports team has me skeptical they can win it all.

    Rangers? Ron Washington was out managed.

    First 2 games mirrors of each other

    Astros small ball against the shift was a surprise also Braves defensive mistakes

    Fried again started poorly but settled in. Astros found another starter to rely on.

    Kyle Wright pitched well in the 8th, he will likely start Game 4 now since Astros hit lefty's well

    Neither team will win 3 in a row so there will be a Game 6 on Tuesday

    of course of all the things to point out from that series, this is what you focus on

    That was a down period of my baseball consumption. I just remember Ron not putting in defensive replacement for Cruz in RF and it made a difference.

    LaRussa is mastermind and I'm bias towards the strategy in the NL game. So Ron was always at a disadvantage.

    I rooted for the Rangers in those WS

    cruz didn't need to be replaced, he was a solid defender and easily had the range. he just wussed out against the wall at a bad time

    the only major mistake wash made was putting Oliver in for the 10th
