ALDS – Game 4 Houston 3-1 Winner
Astros (90-72) 3 – Twins (87-75) 2
The Lone Star battle is in place. One day after the Texas Rangers locked down a spot in the American League Championship Series, the Houston Astros clinched their seventh consecutive ALCS bid with a 3-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins to win their division series 3-1. The Astros relied on home runs and pitching during their World Series championship last year. Jose Abreu (uh-BRAY-o), their prized free agent signing over the winter, hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning to put the Astros ahead 3-1, and starter Jose Urquidy (R-gee-DEE). Closer Ryan Pressly sealed the win from the mound. Now, a first. The Rangers and Astros have never played one another in the postseason. Game 1 of the ALCS is in Houston Sunday with time to be announced.
