Go home, Marwin Gonzalez.

The Houston Astros first baseman ended the longest game of 2016 - by one out - when he took Cleveland Indians right-hander Cody Anderson yard in the bottom of the 16th to give his team a 5-3 win.

Gonzalez was so excited about hitting his second career walk-off blast that he carried his bat down the basepath, unleashing a beauty of a bat flip just before rounding first base.

The loss was likely a bitter pill to swallow for the Indians given how well they'd played in extras. The Indians had held the Astros hitless through eight consecutive innings of the contest, including all of the extra frames, until Carlos Correa opened the Houston 16th with a single two batters before Gonzalez's heroics.

The last-place Astros have now won six of their last 10 contests.
