In this thriller, Yordan's dramatic walk-off HR astounds M's.

Astros and Mariners were playing in the American League Division Series opener at Minute Maid Park. It was the last thing the Mariners wanted to see as they made their way to home plate.

Robbie Ray's second pitch, which Yordan Alvarez smashed, flew into the upper deck in right field. The Astros defeated the Mariners 8-7 after coming from behind thanks to a thrilling walk-off three-run home run.

Having [my parents] present, and even for simply the city of Houston, I believe it to be one of the most memorable events in my career, Alvarez said.

They are aware of our perseverance as a team.

So, just getting that hit there was one of the most memorable experiences of my career.

Bregman added, "We realise how crucial 27 outs are, especially in the postseason."

As the Mariners prepare to play in the first postseason game in Seattle  in 21 years on Saturday at T-Mobile Park, the Astros will now turn to  left-hander Framber Valdez in Game 2 on Thursday.

You shouldn't write us off, Pea remarked. 

"Great teams do that, and our pitching staff has been dominant the entire year. We support one another, and tonight was no different.
