Astros force Game 7 against the Yankees with 7-1 win

After missing the playoffs last year, they signed high-character free agents Beltran, McCann and outfielder Josh Reddick, each of whom has brought their brand of veteran leadership to the clubhouse.

These Astros got here on the strength of their offense. They're always there, in the back of it. They'll be playing for a little more than the Silver Boot trophy when they meet the National League champion Los Angeles Dodgers for Game 1 of the best-of-seven series Tuesday night at Dodgers Stadium. "There's two teams standing".

Fernandez loved it, too.

He added, "I think people in my chair, if you're trying to be good at what you do, you never assume anything".

Not that young stars Cody Bellinger and Carlos Correa would mind, nor would old pros Carlos Beltran and Chase Utley, nor starters Dallas Keuchel and Yu Darvish. Sadly, it was not to be. The ball clearly hit off Castro's arm.

Homer, double, single, double went the Astros against Yankees ace setup man David Robertson, who didn't retire a batter and looked very much like a worn down reliever who'd thrown 11 innings in his team's first 11 postseason games. That's when Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina ripped New York's heart out with a two-run shot to deep left, one that was too far for Mets left fielder Endy Chavez to miraculously rob again.

The Houston Astros are in the World Series for just the second time in team history after defeating the New York Yankees 4-0 Saturday night in the seventh and deciding game of the American League Championship Series. Luis Gonzalez's game-winning RBI base hit was the third walk-off hit of the series, and the first by Arizona. "So, I'm definitely not taking this one for granted".

The Astros will counter with righty Charlie Morton, resulting in a rematch of Game 3 of this series, which was the most lopsided game of the series, an 8-1 Yankee win.

Manager Dave Roberts expressed optimism before Sunday's workout that Seager would be able to play in the World Series.

Under the leadership of executive Nolan Ryan, the Texas Rangers came within one strike in 2011 before losing to St. Louis. Then again, New York's one road win came in a winner-take-all game with Sabathia on the mound. The Astros led the Yankees 4-0 heading into the eighth inning at Houston. Of the 53 decisive Games 7 in Major League history, the home team has won 29 (.547 winning percentage). In 2012, the Astros used the first overall pick on star shortstop Carlos Correa. With Aaron Judge and CC Sabathia returning to his lethal form, the Yankees are going to give the Astros all they can handle in Game 7.

That first year in the AL, the young Astros got pounded and lost 111 times.

Houston Astros fans partied hard after their World Series-bound ballclub took out the Yankees on Saturday night in Game 7 of the American League Championship Series. Brian McCann made it 4-0 with a two-run double later in the fifth. He would pitch just five more, all before his first son was born.

Let's begin with the takeaways from Friday night and the Astros' 7-1 whipping of the Yankees that is allowing us to enjoy another day of baseball.

Obviously, all anyone thinks of when it comes to the 2003 NLCS was that thing that happened in Game 6, but holy crap, Game 7 had its moments as well. The Astros lost three games in a row for the first time in more than a month in the middle of the series. We see is during the regular season and the 162 game grind but in October the chess match goes to a higher level.
