How did it feel to score the go-ahead run on Gary Sanchez's eighth-inning double in Game 4 of the ALCS? "It's tough to describe, to be honest," Yankees rookie Aaron Judge said. "That ballpark is alive. It was unbelievable. That stadium was rocking. The fans were going crazy. I didn't know what to do after I touched home plate. I can't describe it. That's why we play this game, for a moment like that."

Lefty CC Sabathia was part of New York's championship run in 2009, the year the new Yankee Stadium opened. But he hasn't heard this much buzz at the ballpark in the Bronx since the team played across the street."This is the loudest I've ever heard it. I said that earlier in the playoffs. That wild-card game and the two games against the Indians. It feels like the old stadium," Sabathia said after the Yankees beat the Astros in Game 4 of the ALCS. "It's intimidating to come here and play. And when the crowd is like it is and has been, it makes a big difference."

The Yankees didn't take the lead in Game 4 of the ALCS until the eighth inning, but Aaron Judge's solo home run in the seventh sure helped shift the momentum. Said starter Sonny Gray after the game: "When he steps up there in the seventh and hits a homer, that's when everyone's wheels start turning, like, 'OK, let's go. We've broken the ice. Now it's time to put some good at-bats together and do whatever we can to get this game.'"

Big 8th inning keys Yanks' victory (1:40)

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

In a comeback that will immediately rank among the best in franchise playoff history, the relentless Yankees came-from-behind to beat the Houston Astros, 6-4, in Game 4 of the ALCS to tie the series at two games apiece. Rookie Aaron Judge led the way with a seventh inning solo homer for the first run and then an eighth inning RBI double to tie it. Gary Sanchez's two run-double off Astros closer Ken Giles had the decisive hit after Judge.

What is it about the eighth inning of Game 4s for the Astros? It has all come apart here against the Yankees with a meltdown that could reach the level of that five-run eighth inning of Game 4 of the Division Series in 2015 against the Kansas City Royals.

MLB postseason games lasting longer than ever

If you think MLB playoff games are lasting longer, you're right -- the average game is 10 minutes longer than last year, and 21 minutes longer than two years ago.

Judge crushes homer to center (0:23)

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Lance McCullers Jr. completed six innings for the first time since June 8 and gave the Astros more than they could've hoped. But the bullpen still needs to record the final four outs, and other than closer Ken Giles, Houston manager A.J. Hinch hasn't shown a lot of faith in his relievers in the postseason. Still a long way to go here.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

The Yankees are trying to make yet another comeback in this postseason, and their MVP candidate Aaron Judge has started things off. Judge hit a mammoth seventh inning solo homer to center to put the Yankees' first run on the board and chase Astros' starter Lance McCullers. It was only the second hit McCullers had allowed all day. It was the second homer in as many days for Judge and his third of the playoffs.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Before the game, manager A.J. Hinch said the Astros were "one click away" from busting out. Click. Yuli Gurriel clears the bases with a three-run double, giving Houston the big hit it has been looking for since the end of Game 2. It was only the Stros' fifth extra-base hit of the series.
