Bayou City Weekend Headlines: Houston Astros Come Up Clutch In Top Of The 9th, Blow It In The Bottom


Just when you think, “Oh my! The Houston Astros actually come up clutch,” the Astros still know how to disappoint you. A two-out, two-run single by Jose Altuve gave the Astros the 4-3 lead in the 9th. A 55-minute rain delay gave Astros fans a short feeling of a win, before the bullpen did what they do best, blow the game. Anthony Bass blew the save and Paul Clemens allowed the walk-off loss. What’s new?!? At least George Springer hit another home run! Check out the rest of the links for more in Houston sports.

The Montreal Expos had interest in drafting Bo out of school, but his mother was so determined to have him go to college that every team knew Bo would be a waste of a pick. He didn’t play professional baseball until after he attended the University of Iowa.

Houston Rockets

There was an interesting segment the other night on TNT’s Inside the NBA, discussing the Houston Rockets’ quest for a third star.  Howard Beck, formerly of The New York Times, mentioned Rajon Rondo, Dirk, Chris Bosh, Carmelo Anthony, and even Lebron James as possible targets for Houston this offseason.  None of this is really earth-shattering.  Daryl Morey’s belief that this team is still missing a “third star” has been publicly documented.  But should the Rockets pursue a third gun and if so, who would be the best target and can any of them even be had?
