    As Rougned Odor belted a first-inning offering from Houston ace and Cy Young favorite Dallas Keuchel, he took a little bit of extra time running the bases after a quick stare down to the mound.

    You see, last time Keuchel faced the Rangers, he got the better of them and he had some words for the 21-year-old Rangers second baseman for some antics the night before that led to a bench-clearing affair.

    On Wednesday night, Odor swung, glared, and trotted to first base. Before he hit the bag, he threw in a little skip. As he crossed home plate, he threw in a little shimmy as he touched the plate in front of Houston catcher Hank Conger, who began the whole fracas back in July by questioning Odor's approach to the batter's box.

    When all was said and done, Odor's first-inning homer on Wednesday capped a 6-run first inning that eventually led to a 14-3 shellacking of the rival 'Stros, and Odor continued his domination of the Astros.

    This year, alone, Odor has three doubles, three triples, two homers and 11 RBIs in 12 starts against the Astros. Over the course of his career, he's sporting a line of four doubles, four triples, five homers and 20 RBIs in 26 starts.

    You know how Kyle Seager is with the Rangers? Well, Rougned Odor is now officially the Kyle Seager of the Houston Astros, and it's glorious.
