Add calling a huge playoff moment to things Carlos Correa has done in his baseball career.

The star shortstop leveled the American League Championship Series at one win apiece with a dramatic walk-off round-tripper in extras that sent the Houston Astros to a massive win over the New York Yankees on Sunday night.

Teammate Jose Altuve revealed postgame to reporters that Correa had a hunch he would do something special in Game 2 at Minute Maid Park.

"Jose, I think I'm going to do something big tonight," Altuve recalled Correa saying before the pivotal contest, according to Scott Miller of Bleacher Report.

"He really said that," the second baseman added. However, Altuve also conceded that he thought Correa had already provided the magical play with a defensive gem in the top of the sixth inning, which kept the game tied.

For his part, Correa gave a sensible answer when asked about his heroic homer, which came at 11:58 p.m. local time and sent Astros supporters into a frenzy.

"What's today, Sunday? (The fans) have got to go to work tomorrow," he said, according to Brian T. Smith of the Houston Chronicle.

The best-of-seven series will now shift to New York for Game 3 on Tuesday afternoon at Yankee Stadium.
