The Minnesota Twins fell apart in the ninth inning on Tuesday afternoon, and at least one baseball fan couldn’t be happier.
The Houston Astros rallied in the ninth inning to beat the Twins 4-1 in the first round of their AL playoff series, which resulted in a $625,000 payday for one bettor in Mississippi.

Astros win after two-out walk
"These guys know how to battle. They know what it's like," Astros manager Dusty Baker said, via the Associated Press. "They know how to win, and they take pride in what they do."
The Astros now need just one more win to get out of the new wild-card series, which they can do on Wednesday afternoon.
Though that one fan from Mississippi was likely on the edge of the seat during the wild ending in Minneapolis, they ended the day with an incredible payout.
We’ll see if they come back on Wednesday to let it ride.
