A Third Time

11 Jul 2021

It had happened before--twice in the history of the franchise. Down five in the bottom of the ninth, the Houston Astros dumb-struck the New York Yankees, scoring six runs in the final frame--the last three on a 368-foot home run by Jose Altuve--to beat New York 8-7 in Houston. Only twice before had the Astros rallied from five runs down in the ninth to win.

MW (35) who has won five of the last seven on the ProGrid Tour and LD (35) who leads the GridCard in Total Points both stayed hot and shared the KOTM. It was MW's fifth Hamlin-Hopper of the year, number two for LD. Eight other players posted Qualifying Scores: dangerzone (34), Zeke (34), jocko (34), MMc (33), dkropf (31), Lim Lamb (31), KMac (30), and Ace (30).
