     UNDATED (AP) - The Houston Astros climbed out of a two-run hole on Wednesday, then blew a two-run lead in extra innings before knotting the World Series at a game apiece.
 
     George Springer unloaded a two-run homer off Brandon McCarthy in the 11th inning to lift the Astros past the Dodgers, 7-6 in Los Angeles. Cameron Maybin started the rally with a leadoff single and stole second before scoring on Houston's fourth home run since the ninth inning.
 
     The Astros stormed back from a 3-1 deficit, tying the game on a solo shot by Marwin Gonzalez in the ninth before Josh Fields served up back-to-back homers by Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa in the top of the 10th. Yasiel Puig countered with a solo blast leading off the bottom of the 10th, but Houston was one out from a 5-4 win until Enrique Hernandez poked an RBI single to extend the game.
 
     Joc Pederson and Corey Seager also went deep for the Dodgers, who were coming off a 3-1 victory in the opener.
 
     Astros starter Justin Verlander had a no-hitter until Pederson's solo shot in the fifth inning. Verlander also surrendered Seager's two-run homer but no other hits in his six innings of work.

     The teams set a World Series record by combining for eight home runs, six coming in the last three innings. Each team had four homers, but the Dodgers were outhit 14-5.
 
     Astros manager A.J. Hinch has announced his starting pitchers for the next two games, saying Lance McCullers will pitch Friday and Charlie Morton will take the mound Saturday.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Astros second baseman Jose Altuve and Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton are the recipients of the Hank Aaron Award in their respective leagues.
 
     Altuve won the AL batting championship for the third time in four years, hitting a major league-best .346 with 24 home runs, 81 RBIs and 112 runs scored. The five-time All-Star also led his league with an 8.3 wins above replacement.
 
     Stanton was the majors' top power hitter this year, belting 59 home runs and 132 RBIs with an NL-leading .631 slugging average. Like Altuve, Stanton paced his league in wins above replacement at 7.6.
 
     In other major league news:
 
     - Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is expected to miss more than a month of the 2018 season. The team said on Wednesday that Pedroia had surgery to restore the cartilage in his left knee and will return to major league action in seven months, which would put him back in the lineup in late May.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED - Philadelphia 76ers rookie guard Markelle Fultz sat out Wednesday's game and will miss two more with soreness in his right shoulder.
 
     The No. 1 pick in this year's draft has had shoulder issues that have greatly affected his shooting so far this season. He has missed 18 of his 27 field-goal attempts and is just 6-for-12 from the line.
 
     Also in the NBA:
 
     - San Antonio point guard Tony Parker was able to practice with the Spurs' G League affiliate Wednesday, but the team has not released any timetable for his return.  The six-time All-star hasn't played since rupturing a tendon in his left quadriceps during last season's Western Conference semifinals.
 
     - Former NBA Commissioner David Stern believes medicinal marijuana use should be allowed, but the league says it won't allow players to use it for recreational use. Stern was interviewed by ex-NBA player Al Harrington for the website Uninterrupted's documentary "Concept of Cannabis." Stern said he thought there was "universal agreement that marijuana for medical purposes should be completely legal."
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Dwight Freeney's retirement from football is on hold after the three-time All Pro signed a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks Wednesday.
 
     Freeney had given himself one more week before deciding the rest of the season would likely be spent on the golf course. Seattle needed a defensive end after Cliff Avril was placed on injured reserve due to a neck injury.
 
     Elsewhere around the NFL:
 
     - The Jaguars have signed speedy linebacker Telvin Smith to a four-year contract extension. Smith leads Jacksonville with 58 tackles, three pass breakups and two interceptions this season.
 
     - Mike Nugent is the Cowboys' new kicker while Dan Bailey recovers from a strained right groin suffered in last week's 40-10 rout of the 49ers. Nugent played the previous seven seasons with the Bengals before spending training camp with the Giants over the summer.
 
     - Matt Prater is under contract with the Detroit Lions through the 2020 season after receiving a three-year extension. Lions general manager Bob Quinn says Prater has proven to be one of the NFL's best kickers.
 
     - Panthers coach Ron Rivera says Luke Kuechly is on pace to play Sunday against the Buccaneers after practicing Wednesday in full pads. The league's 2013 Defensive Player of the Year participated in the full practice but hasn't been cleared from the concussion protocol.
 
     - Rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has another target after the Bears acquired receiver Dontrelle Inman from the Chargers for a seventh-round pick, pending a physical. Inman had usually been a third or fourth passing option for the Chargers, grabbing 107 passes for 1,463 yards and seven touchdowns over four seasons.
