The Tampa Bay Rays have an early 3-0 lead on the Houston Astros in Game 2 of the American League Championship Series, and right fielder Manuel Margot is the player of the game through two innings.

Margot got the Rays on the board in the bottom of the first with a three-run homer following an Astros error. He followed that up in the top of the second with a contender for catch of the year.

Tampa entered the game as -127 favorites to win the game, while the Astros were -195 favorite at +1.5 on the run line at DraftKings Sportsbook. At the close of the second inning, the Rays are -420 moneyline favorites and at -2.5 on the run line are favored at -121. Things can change in a hurry!
