Chandra Tripathy, President of Houston Based EN-FAB, Inc., was given the opportunity of a lifetime to throw out the ceremonial first pitch in front of a sold out house of 41,000 fans at Minute Maid Park.

 

More than 30 EN-FAB employees attended the game, most wearing matching Astros shirts. On the field with Chandra were Houston Astros Pitcher Francis Martes and Astros lime-green mascot Orbit.

The Astros went on to win their first division title since 2001, Houston used four homers and seven strong innings from Justin Verlander to clinch the AL West with a 7-1 win over the Seattle Mariners.

 

Verlander struck out 10 over seven innings in his first home start for Houston and retired his first seven batters before Ben Gamel homered into the right-center bullpen in the third. He allowed just two singles after that to improve to 3-0 with a 0.86 ERA since the trade. Derek Fisher and Marwin Gonzalez homered in a big fifth inning.

 

Verlander walked one and raised his strikeout total with Houston to 26 in three games, George Springer and Carlos Correa also homered

 

The Astros become the first team in major league history to win titles in three divisions after previously winning the NL West and NL Central.
