The Houston Astros let a good opportunity to sweep the Chicago White Sox go to waste on Sunday and had an entire day to think about it on Monday ahead of Tuesday’s Game 4. You could tell it by the outcome of the contest, a 10-1 ravaging that sent them into the ALCS for a fifth consecutive season and sets up a clash with the Boston Red Sox.
They fell behind 1-0 early, but they fought back as they always seem to do, getting a double from Carlos Correa that plated two and handed them a lead they’d never relinquish. That came in the third, and in the fourth, more damage was done as Alex Bregman doubled in a couple more runs of his own. Michael Brantley also racked up two RBI’s in the game, both coming on singles, while Jose Altuve completed the scoring with a three-run blast in the top of the ninth that underlined the Astros’ dominance. Houston will now have home-field advantage in the ALCS with the aforementioned Red Sox, and many will have them as the favorites to advance to another World Series as well.
