The Houston Astros topped the New York Yankees 8-3 and are now one win away from heading back to the World Series since 2017.

Astros take control of the ALCS as they lead the series 3-1. Although Zack Grenkie walked three batters and scoring in a run, Houston took advantage of the Yankee’s pitching and errors throughout the game to give them a commanding lead early on.

In the 3rd inning, as George Springer hit a 3 run home run. Carlos Correa followed with another 3 run shot on the top of the 6th, making it his second home-run of the series.
Springer’s home-run passes Jose Altuve’s Astros record for most postseason home-runs with 13. Correa and Springer have also earned the stat of hitting homeruns more often than any other teammates in post season history! Carlos Correa has 30 career MLB postseason RBI’s, which is most by a player turning 26.

“They’re the best team in baseball!” Frank Thomas said at the post-game talk show for Fox Sports.

The Yankees are on a 3 game losing streak, first since August 18th. The struggling team has left 10 runners on base, and are 0-7 with runners on scoring position. New York are one game away facing elimination, as well as the Astros being one game away from the World Series.

 

The Astros and Yankees continue the series with another game tonight at 6:08PM Central Time at New York.
