HOUSTON - “Weird” is the most common term to describe the final play during the Astros Tuesday night win against the A’s at Minute Maid Park, but some folks had some fun on social media describing their reactions to the bizarre episode in the 11th inning.
Here are some of the best reactions from the team, players, fans and commentators:
Called it. Said “@ABREG_1 is gonna tap it foul, its gonna spin back fair, catcher picks it up to tag Breg but hes gonna matrix it which then the ball is thrown at the ump, catchers gonna pick it up and rifle it to the back of Bregs head and the ball goes into RF. Tucker scores” — Justin Verlander (@JustinVerlander) July 11, 2018

I don’t want to EVER see Alex Bregman in another uniform! This man MUST RETIRE as a member of the #Astros! It’s almost unfair that we have this guy on our team! #Athletics #NeverSettle pic.twitter.com/Fhsrt34iNt — House Of Houston (@HouseOfHouston) July 11, 2018
A little delay there (replay), but the #Astros get a win on the catcher dropping a tag and throwing the ball away. Still can’t believe it. Hate to be Lucroy right now. — Climbing Tal's Hill (@astrosCTH) July 11, 2018
