MLB fans love Astros losing to Diamondbacks due to walk-off error

MLB fans rallied to laugh at the Houston Astros for losing to the Arizona Diamondbacks due to a walk-off field error.

Walk-off victories are a wonderful phenomenon in baseball. It turns out that extra innings…due to an error…the Astros can only amplify that joyous moment.

The Diamondbacks clinched their second win of the season easily, benefiting from a simple field error by Houston’s Chas McCormick in left field.

Ketel Marte’s flyball should have resulted in an 08/15 out. It wouldn’t have gotten the Astros completely out of trouble if the bases were still loaded with an out-to-go, but it would have given them a chance to extend the game. Obviously it didn’t turn out that way.

MLB fans cheered the Astros’ embarrassing loss to the D’backs

The Astros are still being mocked by MLB fans for their sign-stealing scandal, so you can bet more than just Diamondback’s Twitter enjoyed this result. There was celebration around the league.

A walk-off error will always be fun, let alone a walk-off error against a non-competitor.

Arizona isn’t exactly built to win this year, which made Houston’s struggle to knock them out all the more hilarious. The Astros pitchers went nine times with the Diamondbacks batsmen. Hitting was not a fruitful exercise for either team.

Ironically, McCormick was one of the few Astros able to make contact. He went 3-for-4 and hit the tie run with a sacrificial fly in the seventh inning.

With the series split, Houston will now complete its three-game road trip against the Mariners this weekend. The D’backs leave town to face the Mets. MLB fans love Astros losing to Diamondbacks due to walk-off error
