Chris Young Just Misses Walk-Off Home Run…Again – VIDEO

Oakland A’s outfielder Chris Young just missed hitting a walk-off home run, for the second consecutive night, on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, Young was at the plate, facing Houston Astros relief pitcher Chia-Jen Lo, with his team trailing, 5-4. With two outs, and a runner on first base, in the bottom of the ninth inning, Young hit a ball, with home run distance, that went about a fraction-of-an-inch foul, outside the left-field foul pole.

On Wednesday night, in a 1-1 game, in the bottom of the tenth inning, Young was facing Astros’ reliever Lucas Harrell, when he hit a deep drive to left-field. The ball had home run distance, but Houston’s Robbie Grossman jumped up, caught the ball, and robbed Young of the heroic moment.

Grossman also robbed the A’s of a victory, as the Astros went on to win in 11 innings, 2-1.

Two nights in a row. You think Young is just a tad frustrated, right now?
