On Sunday, October 13th, the Houston Astros and the New York Yankees went head to head in the American League Championship Series(ALCS). The game was a pitchers duel, both teams used a variety of pitchers that contributed to the game. The Astros starting pitcher, Justin Verlander started that game and went 6.2 innings with 5 hits, 2 errors, 2 walks, and 7 strikeouts. The Yankees starting pitcher, James Paxton did not do as well. He went 2.1 innings with 4 hits, 1 error, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts. The Yankees bats were not as hot with only six hits total, but a few of those hits actually contributed. Yankees outfielder, Aarron Judge hit a 2 run home run that took the lead, but those two runs were the only that the Yankees scored. The Astros had 7 hits total, but again they had some really important hits. Third baseman, Alex Bregman hit a single of the left field wall that got him into scoring position. Then shortstop, Carlos Correa, hit a double down the line that allowed Alex Bregaman to score, and advanced the DH, Yordon Alvarez to third base. With the Astros behind by one run, the center fielder, George Springer stepped to the plate at blasted a solo home run to tie the game. After that, the bats were dry for both teams. The Astros had gone through 6 pitchers, but the Yankees had gone through 9 in total. What they did not know was that when they put in J.A. Happ, he would only last 2 outs because he threw a high and outside fastball that Carlos Correa blasted to left field for a walk off, solo home run. The Astros took home the victory that night, but the face the Yankees again on Tuesday, October 15. Both teams have a win, but there are 7 games total. Whichever team wins advances to the World Series where they will most likely play the Washington Nationals!
