Houston Lifts Off, Lands In World Series
Behind the right arm of rookie pitcher Luis Garcia, the Houston Astros have won the American League pennant, and are back in the World Series. Garcia provided 5.2 innings pitched, and 7 strikeouts to go with it, rendering the Red Sox bats virtually helpless.
It’s the Astro’s third Fall Classic appearance in five years. Designated hitter, Yordan Alvarez was awarded the series MVP, as his .522 batting average is the highest in single season ALCS history.
Houston now awaits their opponent in either Atlanta or Los Angeles. Game 1 of the World Series is slated for Tuesday, October 26th.
