This Day in Astros History
October 9th

1 Fact(s) Found
2005 At Minute Maid Park, Chris Burke's 18th-inning homer ends the longest postseason game in baseball history as the Astros defeat the Braves, 7-6, to advance into the National League Championship Series. Atlanta's five-run late lead in the contest vanishes with an eighth-inning grand slam by Lance Berkman and a two-out ninth-inning solo shot by Brad Ausmus, which barely clears Gold Glove center fielder Andruw Jones' outstretched hand.
