MARTIN MALDONALDO DROVE in three runs and the Houston Astros extended their World Series title bid by rallying from a four-run deficit to defeat Atlanta 9-5 last night.

The 35-year-old Puerto Rican catcher became the first player in a World Series game to plate runs with a single, walk and sacrifice fly as the Astros pulled within 3-2 in Major League Baseball’s best-of-seven final with game six on Tuesday in Houston.
