AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM) – Soon after the Houston Astros rallied for three runs in the bottom of the 7th of Game 4 of the ALDS to take a 6-2 lead over the Kansas City Royals, Governor Abbott tweeted a congratulatory message to the Astros:

“Congrats to the @Astros on advancing to the #ALCS.  Hoping for an all-Texas #ALCS.  Looking at you @Rangers.”

The Royals proceeded to score five runs in the top of the eight and two more in the top of the ninth to beat the Astros 9-6 Monday.

The two teams will play a decisive Game 5 in Kansas City on Wednesday.

The tweet was removed from the Governor’s office account.

The Governor later tweeted for people to unfollow the office account and follow his personal account.
