I can’t believe I’m writing this again: I feel as if we’re back in 05. The hitters are not hitting, Matsui is slumping badly and again I’m starting to say, after the first hit, well, at least we won’t be no-hit.
However, I sure didn’t think, in the second inning, when JR Towles drove in Pence with a single to left, that the Astros would only get 2 more walks and 4 more hits for the remainder of the ballgame.
Parra is not that great a pitcher, just as Lohse isn’t that great a pitcher and the guys can’t afford to not hit mediocre pitchers.
Ah well – at least THIS time, Towles can’t take all the blame for the lack of hits.
And Backe can NOT be giving up 3 homers a game.
