This one could have gone the other way

Top of the eighth inning, bases loaded, nobody down, the Astros 3, the Royals 2—the game on the line. Earlier on this road trip, in a similar situation, Elliot Johnson had a bad at-bat. With the bases loaded and nobody down, the hitter wants to get a ball up in the zone, drive it to the outfield and stay out of the double play. In his at-bat, Johnson swung at a change-up down in the zone, popped it up and let the Oakland A’s off the hook.
