Muffed pop up give Astros bizarre walk-off win





The Houston Astros sure looked like they were headed to the 11th inning in a scoreless tie against the San Diego Padres on Saturday night. But this harmless infield pop up by Alex Bregman had other ideas.

With two outs in the 10th inning Bregman popped a ball just up the first base line in fair territory, seemingly a sure out. But when first baseman Eric Hosmer came in to field the ball he overran it, and the ball fell harmlessly behind him for — technically — a single for Bregman.


Derek Fisher was the pinch runner on second base, and with two outs just kept running. Once the ball dropped he was able to score the only run of the game quite easily, giving Houston a walk-off win.


The defending World Series champion Astros, who won 101 games last year, are now 7-2 after finally catching a break.
