A highly entertaining game of baseball unfolded in Houston last evening. Yu Darvish was nearly perfect, striking out 14 batters in 8.2 innings, before Marwin Gonzalez broke up his perfect game bid. Lucas Harrell, although overshadowed by Darvish, was pretty decent for the Astros. Justin Maxwell, though, gave us one of the night’s more laughable moments in the top of the 7th when he attempted to lay out for a fly ball off the bat of Craig Gentry.
Gentry would end up with a triple. Great effort, Justin Maxwell, but that wasn’t even close.
