Astros may have played petty joke on Blue Jays pitcher Anthony Bass in Tuesday's game

By now, everyone who has ever used the internet is well aware of what happened with Anthony Bass, his pregnant wife and United Airlines. During Tuesday night's matchup between the Blue Jays and Astros, the home team may have made a poorly-timed jab at Bass, who briefly played for Houston back in 2014.

If, by chance, you are one of the few who missed it, here's the gist: Bass made a post on Twitter calling out United Airlines for making his wife, who is 22 weeks pregnant, get on her hands and knees to pick up popcorn their youngest daughter spilled on the ground.

Since this initial post, the internet has caught fire, mostly with people calling for Bass's head. Further information has come to light (like his wife being a high-risk pregnancy and that she left the plane in tears after the incident), but the reaction regarding this whole thing has been mostly negative towards the 12-year big league veteran and his family.

While the Blue Jays were up to bat in Tuesday's game, I noticed a little something being advertised behind home plate. The Astros were running a United Airlines ad.

Coincidence? Maybe. A poorly-timed joke towards an opposing player? Also a possibility.

Either way, the Blue Jays got the last laugh in the contest. Chris Bassitt looked to be his old self on the mound (6.1 innings, 0 ER, 5 Ks), both Matt Chapman and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. continued their stretch of offensive prowess and hit home runs, and Jordan Romano came in and slammed the door with a four out save.

In the fourth inning, both Chapman and Guerrero hit home runs off of Astros starter José Urquidy. It was the third big fly of the year by Vladdy and fifth of the year for the player now referred to as "Bat" Chapman.
