Until Carlos Correa began Sunday’s go-ahead, three-run eighth inning with a game-tying solo home run, his team had no extra-base hits.

Correa bludgeoned Brandon Mauer’s grooved 3-1 four-seam fastball just above his bullpen 410 feet away. Yuli Gurriel chased Mauer with a single. Tim Hill’s first pitch was scorched down the third-base line by pinch-hitter Tyler White.

Consecutive singles from Gattis and Marwin Gonzalez scored both runs, the tenacious carousel of this Astros lineup continuing to move.
