Astros Win on Ugliest Walk-Off Imaginable


Houston AstrosSeattle Mariners

Alex Bregman stepped to the plate in the bottom of the 11th with the score tied at 5 and runners at first and second. He tapped a ball a few feet that looked as if it would stay foul, but spun into fair territory. Oakland catcher Jonathan Lucroy, in a rush to grab it and get any out, fumbled it around for a bit before uncorking a throw off of Bregman’s helmet and into no-man’s land, allowing the winning run to score.

Gross. Just gross. The type of stuff you’d see at your town’s second-best Little League on a given night.
