HOUSTON - The Houston Astros are on a winning streak. 

Justin Verlander took the mound in Wednesday’s game and only allowed two hits in seven innings against his former team, the Detroit Tigers.

The Astros took home a 5-1 win, and while the fans and players were all pumped, no one was as excited as the team’s mascot, Orbit.

Orbit stripped down to his skivvies and streaked across the field in an enthusiastic celebration of the team’s eighth straight win.

The Astros shared a video of the moment on the team’s Twitter page and, of course, the moment trumped any play as the highlight of the game. 

The team is headed to Boston Wednesday for their first game against the Red Sox. This will be the first time facing the team since they knocked the Astros out of the series in 2018.
