Astros GIF WTF Recap: Houston Astros vs Cleveland Indians April 20, 2013; Cleveland Destroy Astros 19-6

Houston Astros dig themselves an early football score like deficit against the Cleveland Indians.


Well this one got off to a horrible start as Philip Humber allowed eight runs in the first inning joining fellow rotation mates Bud Norris and Erik Bedard in failing to get out of the first inning this season.

Despite the run deficit that continued to get bigger there were some Astros moments worthy of the GIF treatment.

2nd Inning

After Ronny Cedeno's groundout to score Carlos Pena, Brandon Barnes hits his first homerun of the season to right field, a two-run shot.


3rd Inning

Brandon Laird makes himself more useful than Brett Wallace in only his second at bat at the major league level.


Following Laird's homerun both Chris Carter and Carlos Pena reach base and score on Ronny Cedeno's single to left field that is just out of the reach of Mike Aviles to get the Astros within nine runs. Unfortunately, Jason Giambi hits a three-run bomb in the top half of the fourth inning against recently activated Travis Blackley.

This may be the only GIFs of the night
