Hopefully Astros beat writer Jake Kaplan didn’t have to meet a deadline for the Houston Chronicle right after Tuesday night’s MLB All-Star Game at Petco Park.

In the top of the eighth inning, Kaplan’s laptop was destroyed, thanks to a foul ball off the bat of Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy. I went back and found what appears to be the foul ball that did the damage:

That seemed to be solid contact from Lucroy off a 96-mph fastball from Andrew Miller, and here was the result for Kaplan’s laptop in the press box:

The broken laptop didn’t stop Kaplan from tweeting (from his phone, we assume) when the game ended:

Sorry, Houston Chronicle, but that tweet may have to serve as Kaplan’s game recap for tonight.
