WATCH: George Springer hits walk-off home run in the 13th inning

Time for a walk-off.

MLB: Seattle Mariners at Houston Astros Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports

Nothing was working for the Astros in the 13th inning when it started. Jandel Gustave walked Mitch Haniger, Robinson Cano, and Nelson Cruz. The winning run was 90 feet away without the Mariners even needing to get a hit.

It didn't get better when Brad Peacock walked his first batter, Kyle Seager, to force home a run.

But Peacock rebounded. He retired the next three batters. The Astros attempted to start a comeback against a pitcher making his major league debut, Chase De Jong.

De Jong walked Evan Gattis and got Yuli Gurriel and Josh Reddick out. Nori Aoki kept the game alive with a sneaky single to put George Springer at the plate.

Springer didn't waste his opportunity, lifting a high fly to the end of the Crawford Boxes. The Mariners left fielder jumped from left to right to see if the ball was going to fall in front of the wall or the right of the wall.

Instead, it went over to the first row...sending home the Astros with a win.
