- The Houston Astros pulled out a wild victory in the epic Game 5.
- Astros shortstop Carlos Correa leapt out of the dugout and onto the field when the triumphing bump was struck.
Correa was so delirious in the stage that he doesn’t remember what he did.
The Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in the absolute marathon that was Game 5 of the 2017 World Series on Sunday night.
After staging three fantastic comebacks and then staving off an additional from the Dodgers, the Astros were able to triumph the game in extra innings with a walk-off bump from Alex Bregman that scored pinch runner Derek Fisher from second base.
The bump sent the the Astros group and its fans into joyous hysterics, but it’s quite possible no one was as thrilled as Carlos Correa, who leapt out of the dugout with ease and sprinted approaching the diamond as soon as the ball left Bregman’s bat.

In his excitement, Correa cleared the dugout fence, ran approaching home plate to act as an impromptu base coach, and then charged to second base with a hand in the air, all in the span of ten seconds.
It’s clear he’s in delirium, so much so that later in the evening he would take to Twitter to assert that he couldn’t even remember the stage as it happened.
I can’t recall doing that 😂😂😂 https://t.co/qhpOQoIIon

Given that Correa was so crucial to the comeback victory — he went 3-for-5 with an RBI double and two-run home run — it’s no surprise that he would be so secured in on the game’s concluding periods as Houston secured the triumph and a 3-2 lead in the series.
The series now heads back to Los Angeles, where the Astros will be merely one triumph away from their first title in franchise history. The first pitch of Game 6 is scheduled for Tuesday at 8:20 p.m. ET, with Justin Verlander on the mound for the Astros and Rich Hill likely to start for the Dodgers.
