WATCH: Tyler White propels Astros over A’s with walk-off HR

By Jesse Reed

The Houston Astros have taken two games out of three against the Oakland Athletics, thanks in part to a thunderous walk-off home run by Tyler White Wednesday.

White stepped up to the plate with the game tied up at 4-4 in the bottom of the ninth inning against Jeurys Familia and took a hanging curve deep.

This home run not only propelled the Astros to a 2.5-game lead in the American League West, but it also helped them become just the second team to hand the Athletics a series loss in the past two months.
