In the top of the fifth inning of Tuesday night’s Astros-Rangers game, Houston shortstop Marwin Gonzalez hit a chopper back to pitcher Jason Frasor, who overthrew his man on second base. Fortunately, the ball was caught by Ian Kinsler who was backing up the play.
Unfortunately, Max Stassi — who was making his major league debut — did not know that, and started to wander off the bag, thinking he was out. And, well, you guessed it…
He was tagged out by Kinsler.
Hahaha. Classic ‘Stros. Welcome to the big leagues, rook!
