A legendary pitching performance by Justin Verlander, a memorable swing from Carlos Correa and a mad-dash sprint from Jose Altuve have the Astros two wins away from reaching the World Series presented by YouTube TV.
Correa hit a game-winning double into the right-center-field gap off Aroldis Chapman to score Altuve from first base and send the Astros to a 2-1 walk-off win over the Yankees in Game 2 of the American League Championship Series presented by Camping World on Saturday at Minute Maid Park.
These first two games have been very even, the Astros have just been a little bit better. These aren’t two games that make you think that the Yankees have no chance to win the series, but they’re certainly two really tough, one-run losses. Keuchel and Verlander were both excellent. It really is more of a case of tipping the hat to them than anything else.
