Bregman just misses tying homer (0:48)

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

High drama at the Derby! Alex Bregman puts on a late surge to challenge Kyle Schwarber's 16 home runs, but his final ball bounces off the fence in left-center and he falls one short at 15. His Astros teammates give him hugs and congratulations for a superb effort and then discuss whether candlesticks will be an appropriate baby shower gift for Justin Verlander and Kate Upton.

Astros beat A's 6-5 on bizarre play in 11th inning

Alex Bregman homered twice and his tapper just in front of the plate in the 11th inning led to a bizarre play that ended the game, as catcher Jonathan Lucroy's throwing error handed the Houston Astros a 6-5 victory over the Oakland Athletics.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Crazy finish in Houston. After Stephen Piscotty had homered to give the A's the lead in the top of the 11th, the Astros tied it and then won it on Alex Bregman's dribbler in front of the plate when Jonathan Lucroy throw to first base glanced off Bregman's helmet, allowing the winning run to score (upheld after a long review).
