WATCH: Chris Young asks to see ball after being robbed of walk-off home run

  • David Whitlock

Chris Young (and the Oakland A’s) had a rough week against the Major League Baseball worst Houston Astros.  For Young, two nights in a row, he was denied what was inches away from a walk-off home run.  On Tuesday night, his potential 2-run game winning home run was just foul (he struck out to end it).  Then on Wednesday night, Astros OF Robbie Grossman sized up the wall and made an amazing catch with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning.  So amazing, Chris Young looked like he didn’t believe it, and actually asked to see the ball as Grossman strided by him on the way to the dugout.  Watch, courtesy of CSNHouston (via MLB.com):

The Astros strolled away from their second straight win in the 11th.  The A’s got revenge on Thursday with a 5-0 shutout, but still lost the series.

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."
