  My Site News: LATE INNING HEROICS SAVE ASTROS  
 

LATE INNING HEROICS SAVE ASTROS
The Astros outlasted the Rangers 19-18 on Friday night in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. It was a see-saw battle all the way, but in the end the 'Stros were able to come from behind to pull out the victory.

Trailing 4-0 in the bottom of the first, shortstop Devin Kruse led things off with a single. After a Caleb Gomez single to move him to third, pitcher Andy Smith plated Kruse with a single to left. Ian Pellersels followed with a single to score Gomez and catcher Tommy Talbot double to drive in Smith. Left fielder Austin Wyatt singled home Talbot to cap the scoring in the inning.

The Rangers added 5 in the second to go up 9-5. Kruse led off the second with a home run and was followed by back-to-back doubles by outfielder Eduardo Vargas and Gomez. With the score now standing at 9-6 Rangers, first baseman Micah Mcintyre and Smith hit back-to-back singles only to be driven in on a Pellersels single to end the inning.

After 2 and 1/2 innings, the Rangers held a 13-10 lead. The Astros were only able to put up 3 runs in the third led by a double by Wyatt who was knocked in on a long double to the left field fence by second baseman Hunter Dunnam. Gomez capped the scoring in the inning by singling home Dunnam and Kruse who had singled earlier. The score now stood tied at 13 apiece.

The Rangers tacked on 5 to make it a 18-13 ballgame in the top of the fourth. In the bottom of the frame, Smith and Wyatt singled and were driven home on another monster shot by Dunnam which came up just a inches shy of a home run. Kruse singled and Gomez ended the inning by singling home Dunnam to cut the lead to 18-15, Rangers.

Things got a little crazy in the top of the fifth for the Rangers. With runners on first and second and one out, the Ranger batter hit a line shot to left which appeared to easily score 2 runs. However, the first runner to round third stopped for a long enough period of time at third that the umpire called time out without the Rangers knowing. The umpire sent the 2 Ranger runners back to second and third after they had been the dugout for some time. This fortuitious break for the good guys left the Rangers with 1 out and the bases loaded. As the next batter struggled through his at-bat, Astros coach Alan Wyatt spotted the Ranger runner on first base taking an illegal lead of about 10 feet off of the bag. After quietly pointing this out to the ump, the runner was called out giving the Rangers 2 outs. On the next pitch the Ranger batter struck out to retire the side with the Astros still trailing 18-15.

In the bottom of the fifth, Vargas and Gomez led off with back-to-back singles and were driven home on a Mcintyre single. He was followed by a Pellersels single. Tommy Talbot double to drive in Mcintyre. With the score knotted up at 18-18 and one out, Wyatt hit a walk-off double to left to drive in Pellersels to win the game.

The Astros record now stands at 4-5 and they appear to being turning the corner on the season.
