Game 14: Fire Jose Valverde

Brad Lidge suffered through some brutal losses, but Jose Valverde just handed away a game. Without much help, frankly.

Astros lead 3-0 going to the bottom of the 9th. Here’s Jose:

First pitch: home run.

Second pitch: hit by pitch.

Then a strikeout, and then another home run.

Then the next guy reaches on a strikeout/passed ball by Ausmus, and then a game-ending double to left.

Not sure how many wins Jose has taken away from the previous pitcher, but I think it’s four. I’ll look it up.

So instead of a decent 6-8 record, it’s now 5-9.
