Watch: Woman has perfect reaction to Astros fan costing team a run
A woman had a perfect reaction to seeing her companion cost the Houston Astros a run on Friday night by interfering with a ball in play.
Tony Kemp was up with runners on first and second with one out in the bottom of the seventh of a tight game between Houston and the Cleveland Indians. He hit a ball down the line that looked like it could score two runs, but the fan’s interference resulted in the play being called dead. Kemp was awarded a ground rule double, and due to the interference, the runner from first could only advance two bases to third. That cost the Astros a potential run, which they scored anyhow to extend their lead to 3-1.
Take a look at the reaction from the woman after the interference:

That was classic.
One reporter says the fan was later removed from his seat.
The fan who might have cost the Astros a run and definitely cost Kemp an RBI is being escorted from his seat. Don't know if he's being relocated to another seat or relocated to Texas Ave.

Houston won the game 4-1, but at the time, that looked like a potentially serious error.
