The New York Yankees were down to their final two outs against the Houston Astros on Sunday night, but they got a burst of offense right when they needed it. First baseman D.J. LeMahieu just tied the game up with a home run to right field.

LeMahieu's shot came off Roberto Osuna with one out in the ninth inning on a 10-pitch at-bat. The Astros led 4-2 at the time.

As you'll see in the video below, the ball just clears the right field wall. Astros fans were left stunned by the turn of events.

Gio Ushela, who singled to start off the inning, scored on the home run as well. It's now 4-4 as we head to the bottom of the ninth.

LeMahieu, predictably, celebrated like crazy as he rounded the bases.

Houston leads the series 3-2 at the moment. If the Yankees can force a Game 7, the pitching matchup will be Gerrit Cole vs. Luis Severino.

The game is currently being broadcast on FS1.
