Houston Astros Win 10th Straight Game But Everyone Is Talking About This Play
One of the biggest fears for an MLB pitcher is seeing a ball come screaming at you right after you pitched it. Some are lucky and can get their gloves in front of themselves to deflect the ball, others aren't as lucky.
On Tuesday night the Houston Astros took on the Oakland Athletics looking for their 10th straight victory. In the early part of the game, Astros pitcher Collin McHugh was nearly drilled by a ball coming back at him, but this insane Matrix-esque move not only saved him from near disaster, it also resulted in a double play.
The Astros would go on to win their 10th straight game over the Athletics 9-1, with McHugh finishing after six scoreless innings of baseball that included six strikeouts, two hits, and one of the best dodges in history.
