An absolute gem by Luis Garcia, bringing a no-hitter into the sixth inning.
A clutch strikeout by Kendall Graveman, punctuated by Machete Maldonado throwing out the runner at second for a 7th inning strike ‘em out, throw ‘em out double play.
A game just like every other this series, where Yordan Alvarez’ bat could. not. be stopped.
A Kyle Tucker blast to rob the Red Sox of any remaining hope.
The sum of these parts is what all of Astros fandom wants, and what none of the rest of the country does, but we don’t care.
The Houston Astros win the ALCS 4 games to 2, and are back in the World Series for the third time in five years.

It has been a great time to be an Astros fan. It still is a great time to be an Astros fan. And it will continue to be a great time to be an Astros fan!
