SAN DIEGO (AP) – Carlos Correa homered with one out in the ninth inning and the Houston Astros beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3 behind sensational pitching from five rookies to remain alive in the AL Championship Series.
Correa drove a pitch from Nick Anderson to straightaway center field, watched the ball for a few steps and then flung his bat.
He’s only 3 for 18 in the series, but two of the hits are homers.
The Astros won a second straight elimination game thanks in large part to starter Luis Garcia and four fellow rookies.
Game 5 is Friday afternoon at 5:07 P.M.
