The Astros take the series 2-0! The Astros were locked with the Yankees 1-1 for about the whole game, and then reached the 9th and the game was over! The Astros look to take this to New York to win games 3+4! Correa saved the game in the end with Altuve getting the game-winning score! The REAL MVP was able to help his team win off a great hit by Correa and scored at will. This is how the team Is supposed to dominate. All we need are two more games.
Verlander was HOT today as he was able to pitch for 9 innings and did well. Verlander didn’t seem to get too tired towards the end of the game as he pitched straight fire until the end. The Astros seemed to have been off today with their hitting, but this is something that can be worked on as this team is explosive and hot. Any moment this team can explode for a run and win the game. This team is set up to win, and no matter what the offense is capable of doing, the defense is always there to back them up. The next few games should hopefully be a breeze, and this will be a perfect postseason so far.
Hopefully, the Astros are able to win the next game to set up an easy path to the World Series. Something we have all been waiting for can finally be achieved. I know all of Houston is waiting for that moment to go back to a World Series and now blow it. Let's not forget what SI said about the Astros a few years back.
