Houston Scores 3 In 9th Inning To Shock Jansen, Dodgers 4-3

 

HOUSTON (AP) — Hunter Pence’s two-out RBI single in the ninth inning lifted the Houston Astros to a 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday night.

The Astros trailed 3-1 entering the ninth inning before Michael Bourn tied it with his two-out, full-count double down the right-field line that scored two against Kenley Jansen (1-1).

Bill Hall started the rally with a one-out single and Angel Sanchez walked with two outs. Hall and Sanchez advanced on a doublesteal to put the tying runs in scoring position for Bourn.

Jansen hit Clint Barmes with a pitch before Pence’s looping line drive to left field sent Bourn home. Catcher Dioner Navarro blocked the plate but Bourn slid in behind him to tag home.

Jeff Fulchino (1-2) pitched 1 2-3 scoreless innings for Houston.

    I can’t believe we let HOUSTON do that to us! Well, at least I was entertained by the funny stuff the announcers say during the game:
