Maybe The Craziest Walkoff You Will Ever See

Alex, "Mr. Walk off", Bregman does it again.  The third baseman and 2018 All Star of the Houston Astros, who has five walk offs since and including his stirring walk off hit in the key 5th game of the 2017 World Series may have come up with the craziest one yet [if you can even call this a walk off] in Tuesday night's game against the Oakland A's.

Alex Bregman, Astros All Star Third Baseman
Alex Bregman has had a single, double, home run, and a pop up that crazily dropped on the infield near home plate, for his other walk offs but wait until you see this one.

Set up: the Astros had a 4-0 lead going into the 9th but gave it up as the A's rallied for 4 runs.  In extra innings, it looked like the Astros would face a demoralizing defeat as the A's hit a HR in top of 11th for a 5-4 lead going into the bottom of the 11th.  But a big walk by Josh Reddick [against one of the best relievers in MLB-Blake Treinen] was followed by an even bigger hit by rookie hopeful phenom who just came up from AAA, Kyle Tucker, followed by a FC [throw to home-safe] on a ground ball up the middle by Tony Kemp that tied the game and gave the Astros a huge chance to win the game in the 11th.  So, Alex Bregman was up with runners on first and second and 1 out with a 1-2 count,

when this happened:

Thanks to ATT Sports Net Southwest for the video and thanks to Astros TV Broadcasters, Geoff Blum and Todd Kalas for the great call!
