The Rays lead the Astros 4-0 in the eighth inning of Game 7 of the American League Championship Series on Saturday at San Diego's Petco Park. The Astros are trying to become just the second Major League Baseball team to ever bounce back from a 3-0 deficit in a series.

Lance McCullers got off to a rough start, hitting Manuel Margot with his first pitch, then giving up a home run to Randy Arozarena in the first. Mike Zunino blased a 430-foot homer off McCullers in the second. Zunino added a sacrifice fly in the sixth.
