Not close.  He's out.

T3:

Gardner...ball...called strike...ball...ball, just off the corner...foul...full count...foul...triples down the RF line...Astros challenging...he's out!!!

Score it a double and 9-6-5 on the putout to end the inning

No score.

But, I'm thankful he unnecessarily attempted to stretch a double into a triple with two outs.

I know this was a big thing in 2005, too, but I will never understand closing the roof during good weather (I don't know what the weather is in Houston today).

There was so much that had to go right to make that play.  It's no wonder they sent Gardner.

With that last replay - how in the hell did the ump call him safe in the first place?  He was right on top of it.

It's in the 90s and extremely humid.  Like the middle of August.

How many times do you see it - guy makes a great play and comes up third in the bottom of the inning.

Reddick taps back to the mound...probably qualifies as a dribbler

No score after three.
