Despite Loss, Astros Fans are Fired Up
Though the scoreboard at Minute Maid Park on Tuesday night disappointed Astros fans, Houstonians left the park fired up for Game 7 of the 2019 World Series.
“I was disappointed we didn’t win tonight,” said Astros sign lady Barbara Moon on Tuesday night. “But that’s baseball. I still love watching the game.”
The Houston Astros ended Game 6 with a disappointing 7-2 loss against the Washington Nationals. This forces a Game 7 that takes place Wednesday evening at 7:08 p.m.
Barbara is an avid baseball fan who has been supporting the Astros all season. She even flew to New York’s Yankee stadium to catch games 4 and 5 of the ALCS and last week she and her traveling crew of Astros fans were in Washington D.C., watching the Astros win Games 3, 4, and 5 of the World Series. She still proudly supports the Astros, with handmade signs for each player. “Let’s get it done tomorrow, Go Astros!” she said.
Minute Maid Park also had some first-timers in the stands. Bellaire resident Shalini Aggarwal attended Game 6 – her first World Series game – with her sister Shreya Aggarwal. “Just to experience the atmosphere was amazing,” Shalini said. “Houston fans know how to pump up their players no matter if they win or get defeated.”
Even in Washington D.C., there are pockets of navy and orange. Kara Neumann, who graduated from St. John’s School and now works in Washington D.C., watched the game from her apartment with fellow St. John’s grad Tarika Khaladkar. They say it can be tough to keep the faith while surrounded by Nationals fans, but they – plus Tarika’s Golden Retriever Roscoe – are excited to continue supporting the Astros tonight in Game 7.
“Excitement is just so high here, and rightfully so as the Nats chase their first World Series championship,” said Kara. “That being said, I’m proud to be an Astros fan and will wear my navy and orange proudly tonight, and cheer them on to get us the championship!”
