"We were just trying to feel him out," Astros outfielder J.D. Martinez said. "He'd get ahead and then he'd fall behind right away. It's not like he was just strike, strike, strike, strike and we were fouling them off. He'd throw a couple strikes and then he'd throw a couple balls. We were just being patient with him."
"Anytime you can go into the eighth inning winning by three like that, you have all the confidence in the world with Joba going out there," J.D. Martinez said. "But unfortunately it just didn't happen today."
