Yordan Alvarez’s three-run home run to beat the Mariners on Tuesday night sent the Minute Maid Park crowd into a frenzy, providing fans with one of the most memorable moments in Houston Astros history. Although for an Astros fan, the evening might be one to forget.

An unidentified spectator went viral on Twitter on Tuesday night after being caught in a compromising position in the ninth round. Just before Alvarez hit his home run into the right field seats, the fan was filmed with his precarious finger near his nostril. Was he just scratching his nose? Was he looking for gold? We will never know the real answer.

The viewer in question shouldn’t feel too bad, even if they are tagged by a friend or colleague in the next few days. He looked like he had a pretty solid spot for an instant classic, a game in which the Astros erased 4-0, 7-3 deficits en route to an 8-7 win. Houston and Seattle have combined for four homers in the contest and seven of the nine innings have seen at least one run scored. A bit of potential embarrassment isn’t the worst thing after an exciting afternoon at the ballpark.

Maybe this fan can earn a moment of redemption if he’s filmed again at a key moment. The Astros will host Game 2 of the 2022 ALDS on Thursday, with a first pitch counter scheduled for 2:37 p.m. Framber Valdez will take the hill for Houston as he takes on Seattle ace Luis Castillo.
