Rays the Pennant
The Tampa Bay Rays are going to the World Series after beating the Houston Astros 4-2 in Game 7 of the ALCS at Petco Park in San Diego. The Rays won the first three games of the ALCS, while the Astros won the next three games to get the series to a seventh game. With the Astros having the momentum, the Rays sent Charlie Morton to the mound. Morton has experience winning Game 7 in the past. Morton pitched brilliantly as Randy Arozarena gave Tampa an early lead with a two-run home run in the first inning. The World Series begins Tuesday in Arlington.
