Astros get wild walk-off win against Athletics

The result was easily the weirdest walk-off play of the Major League Baseball season.

In the bottom of the 11th inning in a tied 5-5 game with runners on first and second and one out, Bregman awkwardly chopped a slow-rolling dribbler that seemed to be foul. He's an All-Star who even had two home runs earlier in Tuesday's game against the Athletics.

The Astros continue their four-game series against the A's on Wednesday. Bregman squibbed a ball off home plate that briefly rolled into foul territory but spun back fair.

Alex Bregman dribbled a ball a few feet from home plate that A's catcher Jonathan Lucroy picked up.

But a crafty dodge by Bregman made Lucroy miss and bobble the ball, which then bounced off of umpire David Rackley before falling to the ground. Lucroy then lost control of the ball in his attempt, and Bregman took off running. Lucroy's chance to make the easy play at first base didn't fare any better as his throw sailed into right field for the game-ending error. Kyle Tucker made his way home from second base to give the Astros the improbable win. On April 7, Bregman hit a shallow pop fly that San Diego Padres first baseman Eric Hosmer overran, which allowed the winning run to score.

"That was definitely very weird", Bregman told reporters after the game.
