Just when you think you've seen it all …

The Astros got a walkoff win in extra innings over the Athletics on a ball that first looked foul, ended up fair and never traveled more than a few feet before being fielded.

The Astros' official Twitter feed said it best: "We love weird walkoffs!"

The setup: Alex Bregman was at the plate with one out in the 11th inning of a 5-5 game and Kyle Tucker on second and Tony Kemp on first. Bregman squibbed a ball off home plate that briefly rolled into foul territory but spun back fair.

A's catcher Jonathan Lucroy picked up the ball but dropped it as he tried to tag out Bregman, who then took off for first base. Lucroy threw to first but the ball appeared to hit Bregman in the helmet and ricochet into foul territory, allowing Tucker to score the winning run.

That's a play no one could've imagined. OK, no one but Astros pitcher Justin Verlander, who said he "called it" — jokingly, of course, right? Right? Weird.

That got the Astros social media team comparison shopping for weird walkoffs.
