This young Astros fan grabbed Carlos Correa's home run and now the Astros are a fan of him

Last week, Aaron Judge robbed Francisco Lindor and noted ballhawk Zack Hample on the same grab. During the Yankees' 2-1 loss to the Astros in Saturday's Game 2 of the American League Championship Series presented by Camping World, Judge came up just a little bit short. Not only did Carlos Correa get a home run to open the scoring, but one young Astros fan got a special souvenir -- even if he just missed catching it cleanly: 


This fan was pretty stressed over the whole ordeal:


12-year-old Carson Riley ended up with the ball and, thanks to replay review, it was determined that he didn't interfere with the play. That's a homer he can take free and clear: 


Riley may be an Astros fan, but turns out the Astros are fans of him: At the postgame news conference, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said, "I love that kid. I want to leave that kid tickets."
