Carlos Correa hit a walk-off solo homer in the bottom of the ninth to give the Astros a 4-3 win over the Rays in Game 5 in the ALCS on Thursday. Staying alive. Correa got every little bit of a Nick Anderson fastball with the game tied at 3-3 to give the Astros a win and keep their season afloat. The shortstop has his second homer of this ALCS, and sixth overall in this postseason. The Rays still lead this series 3-2, but Houston appears to have the momentum -- if you believe in that sort of thing. Game 6 will take place on Friday.

Tampa Bay Rays DFS Spin

Blake Snell will start Game 6 of the ALCS on Friday. No surprise here. Snell will be able to pitch on regular rest for the showdown with the Astros with a chance to send the Rays to a World Series with a victory. He'll very likely be facing off against Framber Valdez; his opponent in Game 1. In that opener, Snell allowed just a run over five innings despite allowing six hits and two walks.

Astros vs. Rays Game 6 Betting Prediction

While I backed the Rays in Game 5, it’s clear the tide has turned in this series. The Astros’ duo of Correa and George Springer homered in the same playoff game for the eighth time yesterday, which is twice more than any other duo. According to ESPN Stats & Info, the Astros are the first team in postseason history to hit a leadoff homer and a game-ending homer in the same game. Houston also became just the fourth of 38 teams in postseason history to fall behind 0-3 in a series and come back to force a sixth game. I don’t think they’ll stop there, either. They’re 66-30 in their last 96 games versus a left-handed starter and will face a lefty tonight in Snell. I’m taking Houston to force a Game 7 with a victory again tonight.
