Astros Take World Series Game 2 Lead Vs. Dodgers With Three Late Home Runs

The Houston Astros were staring at an 0-2 deficit in the 2017 World Series before Marwin Gonzalez stepped to the plate and tied the score 3-3 in the ninth inning.

The 28-year-old infielder took Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen deep to center field to quiet the crowd at Dodger Stadium.

Gonzalez joined a small list of players to tie a World Series game with a ninth-inning homer.

Then, in the top of the 10th inning, Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa each launched solo home runs of their own to give the Astros a 5-3 lead.

The series will head to Minute Maid Park in Houston for the next three games, beginning Friday for Game 3.
