I dont know if it is because I still think the Astros are in the National League or something else, but that was a bizarre series.

Porter came out multiple times to talk to his pitchers last time I remember seeing that , well we know what happened.

We were fortunate to take 2 of 3 but the Astros look and play like a college team.
