Astros showing that 'old-school' pitching philosophy still plays with Game 3 win over Yankees

  Astros showing that 'old-school' pitching philosophy still plays with Game 3 win over Yankees Is there a right or wrong way to build a pitching staff? No, but the 2019 Astros are proving there's still a beating heart in a good starting rotation.The relief corps for the Yankees has been good all season, even into the 2019 ALCS. It's no surprise. Without even looking at their Baseball Reference page, just look at the names: Adam Ottavino, Zack Britton, Aroldis Chapman. Those guys are all good. They're three of the nastiest relievers in the sport. They're Pitching Ninja's GIF dream — and they're just three of the seemingly endless quality arms in the Yankee 'pen.

HOUSTON (AP) — Astros manager AJ Hinch had options.

There was Zack Greinke, a veteran ace showing his first signs of fatigue. Out in the bullpen, Gerrit Cole was watching. And of course, Will Harris was warming.

What came next, Hinch will contemplate for years.

"It's a decision I'll have to live with," he said.

After Greinke allowed a homer to Anthony Rendon and walked Juan Soto, Hinch handed a 2-1 lead to Harris in the seventh inning of World Series Game 7. In Harris' first at-bat, Howie Kendrick drove a two-run, go-ahead homer off the right field foul pole screen — a haymaker that stunned Houston in a 6-2 defeat that cost them the chance at a second title in two years.

Mother Nature deals a body blow to the Yankees’ World Series hopes

  Mother Nature deals a body blow to the Yankees’ World Series hopes With Game 4 postponed due to rain, it creates the potential of having four straight games without an off-day, placing a burden on the Yankees bullpen.The Yankees, down 2 games to 1 in the American League Championship Series, may not even be able to return the series back to Houston.

" I have to live with these thoughts. I will never be OK again." This has got to be one of the scariest things that Anxiety does. It makes you look in the I worked with people with anxiety for about twenty years. I have coached my kids through it and also got myself over it. I 've seen more cases than I can

The beast it grows inside, it makes me think like a monster, And for every step I take inside this tunnel it gets darker. Now I've learned no matter what I do I ' ll never be free, And now I've come to realize the beast is me. [Chorus] Is there a cure? I don't know. I ' ll have to deal with this until I heal my altar in ruin.

It was the second straight night Harris surrendered a home run after Rendon took him deep for two runs in Houston's 7-2 loss in Game 6. Harris hadn't allowed a run this postseason before that shot.

Greinke, the 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner who joined the Astros from Arizona at the trade deadline, had looked strong all night. He threw only 80 pitches, was just starting his third turn through the order, and Rendon's homer was just his second hit allowed. He played superb defense, too.

And yet, out came Hinch.

"We asked him to do more today than he had done, and pitched deeper into the game more than he had done in the entire month of October," Hinch said. "I wanted to take him out a bat or two early rather than a bat or two late."

Houston Astros manager AJ Hinch has threatened to pull his squad off the diamond if New York Yankees fans continue to throw objects onto the field.

no doubt i ' ll have to live with these thumbnail deformities forever and i think they look unsightly to look at, look ugly. how can i cope with having such significant imperfections and deformities? ive so far never found a partner due to having mental health problems, so with these deformities how will i find

That was only half the decision that went so wrong.

Hinch could have turned to Cole, a Cy Young Award contender who won Game 5 on Sunday. Ready to go on short rest, he was warming up earlier in the game but had cooled off by the seventh. He only left the bullpen after the final out.

"I wasn't going to pitch him unless we were going to win the World Series and have a lead," Hinch said. "He was going to help us win. He was available, and I felt it was a game that he was going to come in had we tied it or taken the lead."

Harris was Hinch's man for that seventh-inning spot. It's not hard to see why. The right-hander had been steady in the late innings all season, posting a 1.50 ERA in the regular season. And Hinch liked the matchups with Harris facing Kendrick and Asdrubal Cabrera — right-handed hitters who figured to struggle with the right-handed Harris and his sharp breaking ball.

He just faltered at the worst possible time.

"It was an experience I ’ ll have to live with the rest of my life.

"I hate that for him and for us that his last feeling this season is about as low as you can feel coming out of Game 7 of the World Series," Hinch said. "He's answered the bell so many times, he's gotten us out of so many jams. He's been a go-to guy. He's a stand-up guy."

Cole started throwing in the bullpen again in the eighth, but by the ninth he was sitting down again, wearing a jacket and staring emotionless toward the field. He was simply a spectator to the last moments of an illustrious 326-strikeout season that could well earn him his first Cy Young — but that didn't get him a ring.
