The 107-Loss Astros Summed Up in a Single Photo

The Houston Astros endured the worst season in team history in 2012 by losing 107 games—just narrowly edging out last year's squad that lost only 106 contests. 

In the team's final game as a National League franchise, catcher Carlos Corporán found himself on the wrong end of a botched hit-and-run in the 8th inning against the similarly anemic Chicago Cubs. 

With the pitch too far outside to be hit, Corporán went to slide into second, hoping to avoid the throw. Instead he ended up with a mouthful of dirt. 

Indeed. Better luck next year facing off against the A's, Rangers, Angels, and Mariners!
