After a Carlos Correa walk-off home run in Game 5, the Astros have made this ALCS a series.
Houston finally was able to break through offensively and do just enough to beat the Rays 4-3 in both Games 4 and 5. Now they’ll turn to Game 1 stater Framber Valdez to try and extend the series to a seventh.
The Rays will also be going with their Game 1 starter in Blake Snell. Snell out-dueled Valdez in Game 1 by a 2-1 score, so it’ll be interesting to see if the Astros can put up a better performance offensively in Game 6.
