Astros Stun Mariners With 10th Inning Walk-Off Double From Alex Correa

The Astros struggled to start September, but the AL West leaders are back on track thanks to a little drama Tuesday night in Houston. The ‘Stros trailed the Mariners (4-2) in the bottom of the 9th with one out before Alex Bregman crushed a two-run, game-tying home run to force extra innings. With a runner on second in the 10th, it was Alex Correa with a ground-rule double that walked it off. Now 81-57, the Astros are 6.5 games up on the rest of the AL West.
