Astros lose to Pirates on comedic walk-off error (GIF)

No sooner than Greg Brown, the Pirates television announcer, finished these words, "Looks like we're going to extra innings," did the Astros bumble their way to another loss.

As this GIF shows rightfielder Jimmy Paredes and second baseman Jake Elmore collide in the outfield, which allows the ball to drop and the winning run to score. Elmore said the crowd was too loud at PNC Park was too loud and that he couldn't hear whether Paredes had called him off.

The 'Stros found another way to lose tonight and are already 20 games out, but at least they do it with comedic flair. Pittsburgh wins, 5-4.
