If you thought loud cheers and cheers for hit batteries would be the extent of the ridicule of the Houston Astros experience this year, 16 months after the team’s cheat in 2017 emerged, the team’s second road series of the season had quite a surprise for you.
During a visit to the Los Angeles Angels on Monday, the Astros’ game had to be stopped not once, but twice because of fans throwing trash cans, one inflatable and one real, on the field.
First came the inflatable:
And then one with water bottles and beer cans running out:
Alternative angles for each bin can be seen here and here. It looks like a Los Angeles Dodgers fan was in charge of the inflatable trash can while a red fan pushed the right one.
After the second can, Angel Stadium employees apparently decided that one more would mean that things had officially gone out of hand.
At the end of the game, later added injury to insult for the Astros as the team allowed four runs in the eighth inning to blow up a 5-3 lead. It was Houston̵
You have to imagine that this will not be the last time a trash can can appear on the court while the Astros are playing. This will certainly not be the last time they are heard, as blows of trash cans have become a recurring sound from road fans who remain very aware of what the Astros 2017 did behind their dugout on their way to a world championship.
Just wait until the team visits Dodger Stadium and Yankee Stadium this year.
