The Houston Astros evened up the American League Championship Series late Sunday night with a Carlos Correa walk off home run. We had a pitchers’ duel of bullpens that carried this game into extra innings before Houston 3-2 in the 11th inning.

James Paxton gave one run on four hits and two walks, but was chased after only 2 13 innings. Aaron Judge hit a two-run homer in the fourth, but Houston evened it up on a George Springer homer off Adam Ottavino in the fifth. Justin Verlander lasted into the seventh before departing with two outs. Both bullpens shut things down through the tenth.

J.A Happ came in the bottom of the tenth inning to get the final two outs after Jonathan Loaisiga walked back-to-back Astros batters. However, Happ came back in the 11th inning and gave up a leadoff homer to Correa on the first pitch of the inning.

The series heads to New York for Game 3 on Tuesday, with first pitched scheduled for 4:08 p.m. on FS1. Gerrit Cole takes the mound for the Astros, while Luis Severino is pitching for the Yankees.
