The Houston Astros Are Going to the World Series
It looks like Sister Mary Catherine's first pitch really set the tone for the Astros World Series-clinching victory today. Just in case you didn't know Sister Mary Catherine is from Shiner Catholic School!
After the Houston Astros struggled with pitching during games 3 and 4. The Houston Astros pitching staff has really buttoned things up. Game 5 gave us the best start of the postseason thus far. Framber Valdez almost went the distance going 8 innings allowing only 3 hits and striking out 5 against a hot Red Sox offense, at the time.
Today, Luis Garcia went 5 2/3 innings giving up 1 hit and striking out 7 keeping those Red Sox bats quiet. The bullpen has also been outstanding with 12 scoreless innings during the past three games. The Red Sox bats went quiet only scoring 1 run in their final 26 innings of the series. BTW did you see that incredible double play to end the top half of the 7th!
ALVAREZ LEADING THE OFFENSIVE CHARGE:
The Astros were up by 1 in the six, when Yordan Alvarez tripled, the next batter Carlos Correa was hit by a pitch. Tucker hit into an unorthodox unassisted double play by Kyle Schwarver bringing Alvarez home. The Astros went up 2-0 and never looked back. Just for flare, Kyle Tucker added three to the scoreboard with a 3-run homer in the eighth. FINAL SCORE ASTROS 5 RED SOX 0
Jordan has led the offensive charge in the past three games going 9-13 with 1 HR, 3 doubles, and 1 triple. Alvarez has also hit for the cycle over the last three games as well. Today he was 4-4 with a double, triple, and two singles.
