Astros win on one of most bizarre walk-offs ever

Bregman's final hit, though, was just an added bonus to his already impressive night.

But the way he won the game for the Astros on Tuesday wasn't in the way you'd expect. It initially rolled foul, but bounced back across the foul line.

His freakish walk-off on Tuesday wasn't even his first like it. Bregman hit a similar pop-up walk-off in April, though that ball got a little bit more air time. Alex Bregman faced Blake Treinen and topped a ball that traveled perhaps 5 feet in front of the plate.

Then, he unwittingly went into World Cup mode and headed Lucroy's throw into right field, which brought home Kyle Tucker with the winning run in a 6-5 triumph. The A's catcher then fumbled the ball, allowing Bregman to sneak by and jog towards first.

Governor and myself will be looking into what it takes to make sure that we have state of the art capability", said Burgum. Sanford said the extent of the damage is 'devastating and mind-boggling, with RVs utterly flattened and destroyed'.

"It's a good throw but it hit him right in the side of the helmet", Lucroy said.

"(The ending) was weird because I swung at a awful pitch that I shouldn't have swung at", Bregman told reporters (via Mark Berman of Houston TV station KRIV).

This would have been his fourth walk-off RBI of the season, but it was credited as an error so he doesn't get credit. He was named to the AL All-Star team Sunday.
