Astros starter Dallas Keuchel pitched a dominant complete game against the Mariners on Sunday afternoon, but a strange play in the ninth inning stole the show. James Jones lined a ball back toward the mound and off of Keuchel's foot. The ball popped up in the air and went directly toward Jesus Guzman, who stepped on first base for the out.
