Not only is that a heads-up play by Carlos Correa to grab the carom off Jose Altuve's error, but it's an excellent throw home to nail DJ LeMahieu by a good 20 feet. I know these are the best players in the world and all, but plays like that still take incredible execution.
Look how far Correa was from the ball when it first hit the dirt after bouncing off Altuve. Sending was the right call, but he made a perfect play. https://t.co/5hZNmO7pU1

Correa told Altuve, heading into walkoff: I got this. I think I got this.
That's Carlos Correa's 26th career postseason RBI.
That ties Lance Berkman for most in Astros postseason history.
Note that teammate Jose Altuve also entered today with 25.
Dodgers woulda let CC face Altuve...
I’d go like this:
POTG: Carlos Correa, not just the walk-off HR but a massive play on the throw home to keep it at 2-2 back in the 6th(?) plus the RBI hit to make it 1-0 too 👏👏💪
Shout-outs: Springer💥 huge tying run, Harris🔥,Osuna🔥, Smith👏, James👊, Altuve. #Astros
Ni modo, no siempre se puede, y el riesgo es mayor cuando estás bajo presión. El peligro de Jonathan frente a una estocada de Altuve o Bregman, como la que sufrió Happ, lo hizo lanzar con cautela y ceder 2 boletos. Lo metieron para fajarse y no pudo. Ya llegará la madurez.
Do any other Astros fans feel deflated when Brantley/Yordan are at the plate and confident as hell when it’s Springer/Altuve/Bregman/Correa?
Here’s the lineup I’d feel the most comfortable with...
Hard for me to hate anyone more than Altuve but that cartel merchant dirty rat Correa really takes the cake.
Correa on what he said to Altuve after helping him with the play to throw out the runner at home: "I told him I'll always be there to pick him up. He's my brother and I'll be there always just as he is for me"
George Springer launched his 12th career homer in the postseason, moving past Jose Altuve for most in @astros
team history. #TakeItBack https://t.co/pTVrpK3jqA
Alex Bregman & Jose Altuve are both midgets. Yuli Gurriel is a racist. Roberto Osuna is a wife beater. George Springer is a stutter boy.
Loaisiga to face Altuve and Bergman. Is this actually happening?
The game was so long I almost forgot about the defensive play. Saved Altuve from...well, some not so nice things.

José Altuve de 4-2 con boleto, Robinson Chirinos de 4-0 con par de ponches y Gleyber Torres de 5-1, la actuación de los venezolanos esta noche.
Trash. I got DJLM diamond, boyyyyyy!
And conquest didn’t give me diamond Altuve, instead of some trash LAA backup, motherfu-
flip altuve and brantley. also...i might bring reddick back
Here's how I would do the lineup.
Yea Ik it was the same thing about Altuve last year but the thing is his has had his spots for yall but not consistent should’ve spent more time on Cole than Stanton in 2017 winter because although y’all have the most money the judge Sanchez and Torres contracts are coming
altuve we need you!!! springer and bregman!!! wake up!!!
imagine not being taller than jose altuve
