Houston Astros second baseman José Altuve has experienced some incredible moments in his career. None of them will come close to what he did on Saturday night.

Minutes after New York Yankees infielder DJ LeMahieu launched a game-tying home run in the top of the ninth, Altuve delivered his own heroics. As the 29-year-old’s two-run blast sailed into the seats, the Astros and their fans celebrated their trip to the World Series.

The entire city of Houston went from early celebration to shock in a matter of moments. Then the heart and soul of the Astros and the city gave everyone reason to celebrate once more.
