The Houston Astros are headed to their second World Series after claiming the American League pennant for the first time, downing the Yankees in the ALCS’s deciding seventh game 4-0 thanks to five shutdown innings from starter Charlie Morton, some well-timed defense, and Lance McCullers Jr. shredding any hopes for a Bronx Bombers comeback across a four-inning appearance.

The Yanks managed just three hits against those Astros pitchers—and just a pair of bases on balls, while striking out 11 times. Evan Gattis and José Altuve homered for Houston, which joined the Cardinals, Reds, and Dodgers as the only franchises to win pennants in multiple leagues.
