The 27th batter takes the first pitch right back through the wicket, breaking up Yu Darvish's perfect game bid. The Houston Astros would have been victimized for the second time in under a year.

The end of that game showed me just how much the Astros got screwed over by their move to the AL West. Those seats were filled with Rangers fans.

In other news, six other MLB games today also did not (or will not) end in perfectos, either. ;-)

Sorry, but no matter if it's the NL or AL, Houston screwed Houston with it's terrible management, from the owner on down. No one's fault but their own.


As for Darvish's performance, it was incredible and I felt bad for him and the Rangers when that hit got through the infield. It was a great, dominating outing by Darvish. It's just that with the upswing in no-nos and perfect games the last couple of years, would he had gotten the attention and respect he deserves if he did get the perfecto done? I say he definitely should, but unfortunately there would be others trying to pooh-pooh it by saying it's being done more often recently and it was against the Astros. It's not fair to him, but it wouldn't surprise me.

Yeah, but none of them had a headline just DYING to be written.

What? How does this mean they got "screwed," exactly? If it weren't Ranger fans, those seats would have been empty. I'm sure the Astros management appreciated the extra ticket sales.

Personally, I think you missed a chance at a perfect thread title: Yu Got Served.

Darvish going 8 2/3 with 14 strikeouts is still a helluva feat, one I doubt you'll see in hundreds of other MLB games this season.

Seriously, I tuned in and watched this whole friggin' game. I audibly groaned so loud when the single went through his legs I woke someone up, and I'm not even a Rangers fan.
