AL Championship Game 6, 9-2 Houston
After three straight losses, Texas rallied from the brink. Texas evened the best-of-seven Major
League Baseball (MLB) American League Championship Series (ALCS) at three games apiece
with a 9-2 victory over visiting Houston in Game 6 on Wednesday. Texas had won Games 1
and 2 of the ALCS, but had dropped Games 3 through 5 and were in danger of elimination.
Once again, Texas got off to a shaky start in the top of the first inning, but tied the game at 1-1
in the top of the second on a home run by leadoff hitter Mitch Garber (32). In the top of the
fourth, Jonah Heim (28) hit a two-run homer to make it 3-1. They then scored five runs in the top
of the ninth to take a 4-2 lead, including a grand slam by No. 4 hitter Adolis Garcia (30-photo) to seal the win.
The winner of Game 7 on Thursday, also in Houston, 카지노사이트랭크 will head to the World
Series. Texas will start “old man” Max Scherzer (39) and Houston will start “young man”
Christian Javier (26) in Game 7. The two had already faced off in Game 3. Back then, Javier
pitched five and two-thirds innings of two-run ball to earn the decision over Scherzer (five runs in four innings).
Texas reached the World Series in back-to-back years in 2010 and 2011, but came up short.
Texas, which was founded in 1972, has yet to win a World Series title. Houston, founded in
1962, has been to the World Series four times, winning rings in two of them (2017 and last
year). The defending champions are looking to become the first team in 23 years to win back-to-
back World Series titles since the New York Yankees won three in a row from 1998-2000. 고스톱
