Carlos Pena goes yard in front of 73 fans to win game for Astros

  • David Whitlock

The Houston Astros aren’t drawing a lot of fans, but especially on weekdays, and against teams from small markets with bad records, and also especially in extra innings.  But those hardy fans that skipped work today were treated to a monster blast by Carlos Pena to walk off for the Astros.  Which gave the team the series.  Watch (via MLB.com)

 

At least he hit it in a section with some day campers!

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
