About 150 alumni and other fans of Abilene Christian University were on hand to cheer Tuesday night at Houston’s Minute Maid Park as the hometown Astros beat the Los Angeles Angels 3-2, thanks to a walk-off home run by shortstop Carlos Correa.
ACU crowds must be lucky charms for home teams; a June 7 game saw the Texas Rangers beat the Astros with about 700 Wildcats watching at Globe Life Park in Arlington.
This night, however, belonged to Houston. ACU friends and family from the area sported purple and white along with navy and orange. Willie the Wildcat also was on hand.
