VIDEO: Eric Sogard Answers Right Back for Rays and Hits Solo Shot in Houston After Awful 1st Inning

The Houston Astros jumped all over Tyler Glasnow and the Tampa Bay Rays in the first inning of Game 5 on Thursday night, plating four runs on five hits before most fans could even blink. Well, the Rays aren't going down without a fight as Eric Sogard ripped a solo blast in the top of the second frame off Gerrit Cole to indicate that this do-or-die clash is far from over.

It takes A LOT to silence crowds at Minute Maid Park and Sogard did just that with one swift swing of the bat on the first pitch that Cole delivered in the second inning.

Heck, it happened so fast that the FS1 broadcast almost missed the call.
