Astros In 18

Hits: 0

For the 6th straight season, the Houston Astros will appear in the ALCS. After a wild 7 hour plus game at T-Mobile Park, Houston swept Seattle after winning Game 3 in walk-off fashion.

Jeremy Pena took a Penn Murfee pitch deep in the 18th inning to stun the Seattle crowd. Regular season starter, Luis Garcia built the foundation of the walk-off by providing Houston 5 innings of shutout baseball in relief.

The Mariners had chances to grab the win and extend the series, but it wasn’t meant to be for the AL West club that made the playoffs for the first time since 2001. Houston will now await the winner of the Cleveland New York series, and make another push to toward a World Series.
