Astros let Ichiro Suzuki score from second base on infield pop-up

Officially, that will go down as an RBI infield single by New York Yankees rookie Yangervis Solarte. But as the GIF above shows, it should go down as a mental error of epic proportions on the part of the Houston Astros. Correction: Multiple mental errors of epic proportions.

Somehow, none of the three players near the easy pop-up -- pitcher Brad Peacock, catcher Carlos Corporan or third baseman Matt Dominguez -- decided to take care of it. Instead, the ball just drops no more than 30 or so feet in front of home plate. And since that pop-up came on a 3-2 count with two outs, the still somewhat fleet-footed Ichiro Suzuki was running on the pitch and managed to score all the way from second base. On a pop-up.
