Orioles give up 'Little League home run' on hilarious throwing error, still come back for upset win over Astros

The Houston Astros and the Baltimore Orioles will meet up on the Major League Baseball diamond Sunday to complete their series.

The Astros are 34-25 in road games. The public betting for the contest now has 85 percent going on the Astros on the road.

Yuli Gurriel is 11-for-36 with five doubles, three home runs and 16 RBIs over the last 10 games for Houston.

Houston Astros (77-40, first in the AL West) vs. Across his 157.2 innings and 15-4 mark so far, Verlander has a 2.68 ERA with 206 Ks and 33 BBs.

With Michael Brantley batting in the ninth inning of the Astros' game in Baltimore, Houston was threatening a rally against Mychal Givens with two on and nobody out in the inning. He finished the game with four runs and seven RBI.

"It was a fun way to win a game, a fun way to get out of the homestand", said Jace Peterson, who had three hits and two RBIs.

The Astros scored eight runs in the first two innings and battered Baltimore starter Aaron Brooks (2-6) for nine runs and nine hits in just three frames.

Baltimore dropped its fifth straight game on Saturday and the Orioles have allowed 58 runs over the five games.

The Orioles are 17-43 on their home turf.

Unfortunately, Baltimore won't have long to celebrate its win today. He is 2-5 on the year with a 4.89 ERA. "We put ourselves in a position to win; our guys did a fantastic job battling back". Rio Ruiz had a solo home run to lead the way while Anthony Santander was the lone player with multiple hits.

For the Sunday game, the Astros will send out Justin Verlander in the start.

The Astros come into the finale after pounding the ball in Saturday's rout. He has allowed just one earned run over his last 19 innings of work.

As for Wojciechowski, he's given up nine earned over his last two starts in 8.2 innings-both losses. I'm not sure what arms the Orioles can really offer to contend with this Houston lineup. They just have to hope the Astros have swing fatigue from Saturday's performance.
