Twitter reacts to Marwin Gonzalez coming up clutch for Astros again

When you think of postseason heroes for the Houston Astros, names like Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman are probably the first that come to mind. In the early part of the 2018 playoffs, it has been Marwin Gonzalez playing that role.

In Game 3 of the ALDS on Monday, Gonzalez came to the plate with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 7th in a 2-2 game. He delivered his sixth hit of the series with a double down the left field line that scored two, giving Houston a 4-2 lead.

Gonzalez was largely responsible for the Astros taking the second game of the series, as it was his double in the 6th inning of Game 2 that gave Houston a 2-1 lead they would not relinquish. Twitter was buzzing after Gonzalez came up clutch again in Game 3:

Many people were also in awe of how high the pitch was that Gonzalez somehow turned into extra bases.

Even Gonzalez looked surprised that he was able to keep that ball fair, which is probably why we didn’t get the same type of bat flip he busted out after his big hit in Game 2.
