In stinging loss to Yankees, Dusty Baker did not give Astros the best chance to win

Dusty Baker is not the reason why the Astros lost to the Yankees last night. But his late-game decision-making might have prevented an Astros win. The Astros entered the bottom of the ninth with a three-run lead, successfully handing the game to their All-Star closer. With a 2.41 ERA on the season, Ryan Pressly had converted 14 saves in 16 chances. He had allowed just one home run in 18 2⁄3 innings, yielding a remarkable 1.9 percent Barrel rate in the process.

Boudin and Baked Potatoes Star at This Meat Market and Barbecue Joint

Just through the front doors of Bud’s House of Meat in south Houston, you’ll likely find co-owner Henry Wayne Adair Jr. directing traffic. Wayne (he goes by his middle name) is part greeter and part quarterback. In his blue-and-white striped shirt, complete with name patch, he points incoming customers to open spots or the shortest line at the meat counter that stretches the length of the building. The variety of raw meat behind the counter is mesmerizing. Turkey wings, fajitas, homemade sausages, and boudin share space with steaks, chops, and ground pork shaped into the silhouette of a pig. If you’re looking for already-smoked meats, Wayne will point you to the takeout counter under the neon sign that reads “Bud’s BBQ To Go.”
