HOUSTON - It’s the question on the minds of Astros fans everywhere.

Did Governor Greg Abbott jinx the Astros?

When the Astros were leading in the game, Abbott’s office twitter account congratulated the team on advancing to the American League Championship Series in a tweet.

But the team ended up losing the game.

The tweet has since been deleted and his office says it was sent out by a staff member, not the governor himself.
