Astros Still Tied, On to the 15th

Typical nerve-wracking extra-inning baseball. I’ve lost track of the number of times in extra innings where the Astros could have won the game with a hit. They’ve had a runner on third with either one or two outs in at least two different innings. In the bottom of the 14th Carlos Beltran made a game-saving catch (for now hopefully) on Tal’s Hill. Winning run on third, two outs, and Luke Scott hits a bomb to center. Beltran tracks it up the hill and makes an over-the-shoulder basket catch, nearly at the top of the hill for the third out. Matt Albers pitched two innings simply dominated the heart of the Mets order. Unfortunately he had to be lifted for a pinch-hitter and now we’re down to Brian Moehler (gulp!).

Went back and checked. We had a runner in scoring position (twice at 3b) in the 9th,  10th, 12th, 14th. Hunter Pence has an 0-fer tonight and was the culprit in two of those occasions. We don’t deserve to win this game.

  1. game over baby! Here comes Wags to shut it down!

    Dude, how about that catch in the 14th by Mr. Boooooltran.

    Aren’t you guys over that yet? (He is a bit overrated if I may say so)

  2. be thankful for the gifts you receive

  3. so beltran (former Astro) makes a game-saving catch and then beltran (former Astro) drives in game-winning RBI and then billy the kid (former Astro) pitches the bottom of the 17th for the save, all the while the current Astros forget how to hit with RISP. So basically the Astros beat the Astros tonight. The Mets really had nothing to do with it.
