Twice the frustration for Houston

Been away for awhile, but this time of year there’s more MLB action than NFL. And one thing with baseball – sometimes your ticket buys you extra innings. The other night at Minute Maid Park Houston Astros fans got two games’ worth of play for the price of one. Unfortunately, the final outcome was Chicago Cubs 8, Astros 6.

Rare as this is, there were two games that went 18 innings Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. In the other one, the Arizona Diamondbacks finally beat the Colorado Rockies 2-1 at Coors Field.
