Astros fall to 0-2 since MLB security tightens

MLB: ALCS-Boston Red Sox at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

1:58 AM EST: Brewers and Dodgers still playing. Back to our main story...

If you missed it, it appears that the Houston Astros are big fat cheaters. They were caught in the act by the Red Sox in game 1 of the ALCS after your Cleveland Indians tipped the Sox off on what to look for.

Lyons already has an excellent post up on the news, which contains the Andre Knott quotes from last week that I was going to go back and retreive for y’all this morning. Good thing, since I’m still watching baseball, something I didn’t plan on.

Multiple Astro employees had already been ejected from Progressive Field, but that didn’t stop their operation from going forward in Houston.

As for their game 3 loss last night, LGFT (but not really) Joe Smith gave up a monster home run to Steve Pearce to fall behind 3-2, and then something amazing happened. The Astros brought Roberto Osuna into the game to keep the score right there—and he hit Mitch Moreland to force in a run before giving up a grand slam to Jackie Bradley Jr. lolol.

UPDATE: The Dodgers walked off on the Brewers to tie the series at 2 games each. Cody Bellinger won this one for them.
