HOUSTON -- Lance Berkman raced home when Darin Erstad lined out to left in the 10th inning and the Houston Astros beat the New York Mets 5-4 Saturday night after tying it on a memorable play in the ninth inning.
New York was leading 4-2 when Houston loaded the bases with one out in the ninth. Pinch-hitter Geoff Blum then lined a single to
left and Hunter Pence raced around third, right on Mark Loretta's
In an image reminiscent of a scene in the baseball movie "Major
League," both players slid in safely in a three-player collision
with catcher Ramon Castro, who lost the ball. Castro left the game
with a sprained right ankle.
