It looked like the Astros were dead men walking after going down 3-0 to the Rays in the ALCS. They stayed alive in Game four, but who would have thought the Astros could win a bullpen contest in Game 5?

But seven bullpen arms including five rookies held the Rays to three runs, and the Astros started the game with a first pitch George Springer dinger, and ended the game with a Carlos Correa walk off homer, his second playoff walk off four-bagger.

Astros win, 4-3

At last the ASTROS have the momentum.

Today, we send out our best starter, Framber Valdez, against the 2018 Cy Young winner, Blake Snell.
