Scott Feldman's dugout interview was suddenly interrupted by a group of Astros ninjas

Over the years, Astros field reporter Julia Morales' dugout interviews have been through all kinds of shenanigans -- everything from sunflower seeds to mascot kidnapping to ... more sunflower seeds. But during Tuesday's game against the Braves, Morales and interviewee Scott Feldman faced their greatest test. 
Like a shadow in the night they come -- as swift as a coarsing river, with all the strength of a great typhoon. By the time you see them, it's already too late. They are the dreaded Astros ninjas, and now THEY RISE:

But, after some momentary confusion, Feldman took it upon himself to fight back, using nothing more than his wits and an immediately available water cup. Alas, the faceless menace was undaunted:

The stalemate continued, until finally Feldman distracted the four ninjas long enough to unmask them, only to discover ... that it was Jake Marisnick, Lance McCullers, Collin McHugh and Dallas Keuchel this whole time. They would've gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for that meddling pitcher.
