Astros Doing Their Thing And Dropping Fly Balls To Lose


Astros Error Cost Game

Ladies and Gentlemen, YOUR Houston Astros.

Pittsburgh Pirates catcher Russell Martin was at bat in the bottom of the ninth, full count, bases loaded and with the score tie.  A weak pop fly to shallow right and the game is going into…oh wait, I forgot, its the Houston Astros.

Right fielder Jimmy Paredes and second baseman Jake Elmore collide before either one of them could catch the ball.  Pirates score. Game Over.

Astros are now 20 games under .500.
