The Houston Astros were down to their last out with score 5-3 and the Boston Red Sox's closer Craig Kimbrel on the mound. 91% of the time the game is over -- Kimbrel has 23 blown saves and 230 career saves.

Kimbrel walked Carlos Correa, setting up Saturday's hero Colby Rasmus to make more magic. In a 0-1 count, Kimbrel attempted to sneak a fastball by Rasmus down and in. Rasmus was locked in and launched the pitch into the Astros bullpen to tie the game at 5-5.

The part of all of this that ESPN had already rolled the graphics to end the game: the MLB copyright info and the fact that SportsCenter was next just before Correa was coming to bat.

SportsCenter will have to wait after some Colby Jack.
