In a game that looked very over, trailing 5-2 in the bottom of the 9th with 2 outs to work with, the Astros absolutely elated all of those home-crowd fans with enough faith to stick around to the end of the game by staging an unbelievable (albeit sneaky) rally against Carlos Marmol and the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday night!
With the bases juiced and all eyes on him, Illinois-born slugger Brian Bogusevic worked a 2-2 count versus Marmol, patiently waiting before depositing a blast to centerfield to completely stun the division-rival Cubbies. [VIDEO]
Best moment of the year at Minute Maid Park? You’d be hard-pressed to name me a better one!
Lyles’ first win was a pretty special night, but it’s got nothing on this in terms of “awesome moment”.
