Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve (top) and catcher Christian Vazquez (9) and center fielder Mauricio Dubon (14) celebrate after designated hitter Yordan Alvarez (44) hit a walk-off three-run home run against the Seattle Mariners in the ninth inning Tuesday in Houston.

HOUSTON — Yordan Alvarez smacked a walk-off, three-run home run with two outs in the ninth inning as the Houston Astros rallied from a trio of four-run deficits to defeat the Seattle Mariners 8-7 in Game 1 of their American League Division Series on Tuesday in Houston.

Alvarez drilled an 0-1 sinker off Mariners left-hander Robbie Ray (0-1) into the right-field seats to end the opener of the best-of-five series. Ray, normally a starting pitcher, was summoned to face the left-handed-hitting Alvarez after Seattle right-hander Paul Sewald put two runners on base while recording two outs.
