Astros Closer Helps American League To All Star Win

Congratulations to the American League winning the 2016 MLB All Star Game 4-2 in San Diego.  Being a Houston Astros fan, this was welcome news because if, I mean when, the Houston Astros win the American League Championship Series against the Cleveland Indians to go to the World Series, they will have the home field advantage, with the first two games at Minute Maid Park in Houston.     [did you see my early prediction there]

Will Harris - Astros All Star relief pitcher
And who would know it but a Houston Astro played a major role in the win, as the Astros closer, Will Harris, came into the game in the top of the 8th inning with the bases loaded and two outs and the AL ahead by 4-2.  

The count came to a nail biting 3 balls and 2 strikes on the St. Louis Cardinals' Aledmys Diaz, and then Harris did this:

Congratulations to our own Will Harris for that big strikeout and maybe leading the way for the Houston Astros to host the 2016 World Series in H-Town for the first two games!
