Astros fan catches Bryce Harper's foul with hat

Click here to watch the video of amazing catch by Astros fan Freddie Villarreal during the top of the 8th inning of the Houston's 3-2 loss to the Nationals in 12 innings on Tuesday.

Villarreal, who was sitting in the first row down the left-field line with his grandpa Frank, was able to haul in Bryce Harper's pop-up with is hat for an amazing souvenir.

Freddy and his grandpa drove over five hours from Laredo, Texas to Houston's Minute Maid Park to take in Tuesday's game.

Five hours in a car? Just to see the Majors' worst team, who entered Tuesday 40 games below .500 at 35-75? That kid definitely deserves a foul ball for being put through that!

Unfortunately for Freddy, his Astros lost in agonizing fashion, on a catch that was even better than his. With two runners on base, and the Astros trailing by a run in the bottom of the 12th, Nats center fieldr Roger Bernadina made a spectacular catch at the wall to end the game. Check the video of Bernadina's sick grab below.
