The Houston Astros have been a frustrating team to watch during the 2016. Are the Astros a playoff team? What went wrong to make them not a playoffs? Someone explain Carlos Gomez, please?
But baseball is built to help you forget the troubles of a bad stretch of games — there is always another to forget a bad run when teams play 162 games.
So it was great to see a glorious comeback for the Astros Friday night in the first of three game against the Rays.
The Astros started the bottom of the ninth down 4-3. Alex Colome was on the mound for the Rays. Carlos Correa quickly tied the game with a solo blast on a first pitch fastball.
Evan Gattis stepped to the plate and blasted a pitch at his eyeballs off the train atop the left field wall to the game with a bang. Here now watch this highlight over and over again.
