Astros vs Yankees ALCS 2022: Alex Bregman blasts left for 3 runs pits Houston against Superstars

Houston, Texas (KTRK) – It’s early in this MLS title game, but it looks like the Astros can go 15 innings while enduring every physical blow the Yankees can handle.

Houston and New York enter Game Two of the AL Championship Series Thursday night, giving each other the best swing of the night before in Game 1.

The Astros once again proved that they can stay resilient enough to win despite the Yankees’ two home runs, which represented the only runs recorded during Houston’s inaugural win.

GRIDLOCK ALERT: Ready for Round Two? Expect another night of crowds and closures in ALCS 2

Game 2 is a whole new game, and Houston is expected to take advantage of the same flexibility to avoid the ALCS contract before heading to the Bronx.

And they will need it. The only day off from the entire series is between Games 2 and 3. If the ALCS needs Games 5 and 6, there will be no day off to travel between them. This means that both teams can play in New York, finish in the evening, pack up and fly to Houston, and play the next night.

This article discusses the major developments in tonight’s game. Check back for updates as they happen.

The first rounds of the game came courtesy of Alex Bregman, who crushed Louis Severino’s fastball four-wheeler 360 feet to the left, with two opponents and two runners at base in the third inning.

The Astros led 3-0.

Immediately then, at the top of the fourth inning, Framber accused Valdes of a foul when, with Aaron Judge at the start, he brought down a weak pop-up from Giancarlo Stanton and knocked out first place, and the racers advanced to second and third.

Valdez would then allow two RBIs, each on a victim victim and a ground hit.

The Astros’ lead trimmed, 3-2, which won’t change before the seventh inning.

The king of quality begins with his turn

In a post-season game for the second consecutive season, the Astros’ starting bowler managed to hold out against his Yankee counterpart.

Framber Valdez, who was highlighted in 2022 with his streak of 25 consecutive starts, made seven rounds of baseball by four strokes, allowing only two runs — both unearned — on 101 pitches.

After a fourth inning error, Valdes regained control, throwing five of the remaining nine hits on the road.

In contrast, Yankees baseman Luis Severino was withdrawn after five rounds and thirds, allowing five hits and three winning runs, each scored by Homer Bergman.

The tuck steals the judge

The Yankees have already been threatening the leadership of the Astros since Homer Bregman.

The closest such attempt to beat Houston came in the eighth inning with Aaron Judge at bat with one runner at the base and Brian Abreu of Houston.

The judge, playing on the right court, fired a fly-ball from the first court deep into the right as his counterpart, Kyle Tucker, made a light jump over the wall to net the second-half goal.

Abreu escaped that role with a Giancarlo Stanton hit.

Yes, the roof is open

And no, the Minute Maid Park roof (roof) isn’t blazing, but it certainly doesn’t need any water, although the crowd should blaze just as much.

There was no cloud over downtown Houston by the time the first pitch was thrown.

Why is the roof open? This is an invitation to Major League Baseball. The Astros usually make this call if the temperature and humidity drop to a certain point. The MLB takes that decision in the postseason, though.

Game 2 marks only the sixth time in the franchise’s post-season history that the roof has been open. The Astros have a 1-4 record in the playoffs while playing under the stars.

Golden ‘Stros: Houston Well Represented as Senior Defensive Award Finalists

Regular season rookie pennant Jeremy Peña – and post-season, really – could mean some honorary hardware by the time the season is over.

Prior to Game 2, the short Astros were selected among the finalists in their position at the AL Gold Glove. The other finalists are Boston’s Xander Bogarts and Minnesota’s Carlos Correa, who was replaced by Peña in Houston.

Outfielder Kyle Tucker joins Peña as the only other representative of the Astros to make it to the final. He received his second consecutive nomination in the right field.

Peña, Tucker, and Astros fans will discover the Golden Glove winners during a special edition of ESPN’s “Baseball Tonight” on November 1 at 4 p.m., which takes place before Game 4 of the upcoming World Series.
