Aaron Judge labels Yankees' season 'a failure' after ALCS loss to Astros

Without quarrel or debate, Jose Altuve serves as the foundation on which the Houston Astros have built their burgeoning powerhouse. He is the heartbeat of a roster flush with All-Stars, the engine often called on at critical times.

And, more often than not, Altuve has delivered everything the Astros have needed in tense postseason moments.

The Houston Astros are moving on to the World Series after eliminating the New York Yankees with a 6-4 victory Saturday night in Houston in Game 6 of the American League Championship Series.

The Nationals, after ousting the Dodgers in the National League Division Series, completed a four-game thrashing of the St. Louis Cardinals in National League Championship Series on October 15, giving them six days off to line up their pitching before Game 1.

A 103-win season, claiming the AL East for the first time since 2012, prevailing over an unprecedented rash of injuries and opening postseason play with a remarkable sweep of the Minnesota Twins all meant nothing to the Yankees as they bowed out of the playoffs with a single swing from Jose Altuve off closer Aroldis Chapman. "That loss really hurt us - and hurt a lot more for me - because we know we have a team that can win the World Series, and to lose the way we lost and me underperforming the way I did, it's going to hurt me a lot for a long time".

In the previous over, the first of the South African innings, Shami had send back Dean Elgar (0) in a similar manner. After reaching 497, India declared on day two of the third and final Test.

But Michael Brantley raced in and made a diving catch then hopped up and fired to first base to double off Judge and end the inning. "We always got the job done and this time we didn't get the job done when it counted". "Unfortunately, sports can be a little bit cruel for the team that goes home". Anybody can be forgiven a bad inning from anybody once in five years, but having it happen in the first inning of an elimination game was definitely not what anybody in the Astros' dugout - or Yankee Stadium - expected. Hitting with runners in scoring position has been a struggle this series for Houston but Gurriel's blast sent this crowd into a frenzy. Prior to this current run, Houston's baseball franchise had won just one pennant in its first 55 years of existence. Brantley made the play, then quickly popped up and fired a ideal throw to first base before Judge could return.

There could very well be a Game 6 dud ahead of us after a season-saving win for the Yankees in the Bronx.

Two batters after Urshela's single, first baseman DJ LeMahieu won a 10-pitch confrontation that included fouling off four two-strike pitches.

Altuve, a sparkplug touted as Houston's heart and soul, didn't let this one get away. "And I was excited for the opportunity for us to prove that today". "And I think all of that adds into find a way to win the game".
