Many people considered the Astros to be the worst team in baseball entering the season, and they’re finally living down to expectations. Houston has the worst record in MLB — 36-74 — and they’ve gone 4-31 over their last 35 games. If you’re wondering how a team can fare so poorly, look no further than the play seen above.

The Astros and Nats were tied at 4 in the 11th when Kurt Suzuki attempted to move Roger Bernadina up from first to second on a sac bunt. He got much more than he expected thanks to some embarrassingly sloppy fielding from the Astros.

Pitcher Wilton Lopez and first baseman Steve Pearce collided trying to catch the popped up bunt, and then Pearce air-mailed the throw into right field. Right fielder Brian Bogusevic then picked up Pearce’s throwing error and matched him with one of his own. He chucked his throw over the catcher’s head, allowing Bernadina to score and Suzuki to reach third. Bernadina’s run was all Washington needed to seal the 5-4 victory in 11.

Yes, the Astros turned a poor bunt into an RBI triple. Way to go, Houston.
