WATCH: Carlos Correa's game-winning single in the 12th inning

Correa sends the Astros home with a win.

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Astros were cruising along to a 5-4 win over the Oakland Athletics, until former Astros Jed Lowrie touched up former Athletics reliever Luke Gregerson for his first home run of the season to tie game.

No matter. George Springer, Jose Altuve, and Carlos Correa were there to save the day.

Correa had just missed home run earlier in the game that would have been the winning run in reflection. But he settled for a triple in the eighth inning and Houston failed to drive him in. Correa was able to finish the job in the twelfth.

Springer opened the twelfth with a double down the line against closer Ryan Madson. Altuve bunted him over to third.

The table was set for Correa, who didn't waste any time. Correa, like Springer, slipped a pitch down the line for single -- easily scoring Springer for the win.

The mob of Astros drenched Correa after the game-winning RBI. Here is the video:
