Astros starter Collin McHugh went into The Matrix to dodge a bullet hit by Kendrys Morales in the bottom of the second inning on Tuesday night in Oakland. By avoiding the line drive, McHugh allowed shortstop Carlos Correa to turn a 6-3 unassisted double play, pulling the plug on any kind of rally the A’s were hoping to start.

The Astros, by the way, came into Tuesday’s contest having won nine games in a row.
