HOUSTON – Carlos Correa and the Houston Astros are restless on the plate and in the field.
That’s why it’s so hard to beat in the playoffs.
Korea hit a two-run double in the seventh innings of Houston’s five-run stand, and Astros beat the Chicago White Sox 9-4 2-0 in their American League Division Series.
Kill Tucker scored three runs and the Esters won the American League Championship Series for the fifth time in a row. Alex Bragman had two wins and two scoring, and Jose Altov made two big plays.
Game 3 of the best of the five series is Sunday night in Chicago.
Astros definitely gave Haroon Bummer (0-1) a one-seventh lead in the seventh over with Jordan Alvarez’s RBI singles. Craig Kimberly then took power and retired Yuri Gorriel before the Korean advance passed right in front of Lori Garcia.
Korea yelled that the crowd shouted at him when he was second. Star Short Stop is eligible for free agency after this season, and maintaining it will be quite expensive for American League West champions Astros.
Tucker then moved his innings to the left to give Houston a 9-4 lead.
