This week’s top game, the Sept. 24 contest between the Rockies and Astros, happened to be the 200,000th regular-season game in major league history. The game was decided in the 13th after the Astros couldn’t respond to the Rockies’ two-run inning, an inning that featured Astros reliever Jordan Lyles issuing a bases-loaded walk to Chris Nelson for the go-ahead run.
