Jose Altuve stays red hot with a solo shot to give Astros the early ALCS lead in Game 1.
It didn’t take long for the Houston Astros and José Altuve to give the Tampa Bay Rays a rally big scare in Game 1 of the ALCS. With Blake Snell on the mound and one out already secured, Altuve took it upon himself to show the whole ballpark how it’s done when he hit one hell of a quick home run.
The Astros are primed already to take their spot in the World Series in hopes of redeeming themselves from the cheating scandal. And it’s way too soon to say this series is over but if you’re a Rays fan (why are you reading this?) you might be getting a wee bit nervous.
