The Houston Astros, baseball villains in 2020, the team that 29 other fanbases are rooted against, the team whose death is expected nationwide, just refused to die.
Tampa Bay Rays Just three days ago, the Astros went up to tie the series to a 7-4 win in Game 6 on Friday night.

This is a game today with AL with seniors and a World Series ticket in line. Now the Astros, after a thorough defeat of the Rays in Game 6, have a lot of momentum heading into a situation they once experienced – a take-all game in the postseason.
The Boston Red Sox, who won that game and the next World Series. “data-reactid =” 32 “> The Astros are now only the second team to advance to Game 7 after being caught 3-0 in the series, the rest being the famous 2004 The Boston Red Sox, who won that game and the ensuing World Series.
George Springer is as dangerous as in October. And starting pitcher Framber Valdez is good enough across six innings that you can barely remember that the Astros have no aces Justin Verlander. Valdez allowed only three hits, one run and nine explosions. “Data-reactid =” 33 “> Jose Altuve, the goat in Games 2 and 3, hit again like an MVP. George Springer is as dangerous as in October And the start of the pitcher Framber Valdez is enough to a total of six innings you can barely remember that the Astros had no ace Justin Verlander. Valdez only allowed three hits, one run and hit nine.
Randy Arozarena is pointless. Even the defense that seems to be somewhere early in this series is scrambling to track hit after hit from the Astros. “Data-reactid =” 34 “> Meanwhile, The Rays saw everything that helped them win in its first three games the series lost in recent days. Their powerful bullpen looks like a loser. Randy Arozarena has none significance.Even the defense that seems to be somewhere early in this series is struggling to follow up hit after hit from the Astros.
Willy adames double – but after that, it was all Astros. “data-reactid =” 35 “> The Rays actually scored first – being pushed on a run in the second round with a double Willy Adames – but after that, all the Astros.
Blake Snell then give up a walk and a single. Snell was startled because he had not yet passed any running. This proved to be a bad Cash move. Diego Castillo, basically a sure thing that eases for Tampa Bay, gave a single to George Springer who took home two runs. Altuve doubled to take home another. Then Michael Brantley walk, Carlos Correa is home alone again. “data-reactid =” 36 “> The fifth entry was when this game was won. Rayays manager Kevin Cash released starter Blake Snell after giving a walk and a single.

Altuve doubled up to take someone else home.After Michael Brantley walked away, Carlos Correa was home alone again.
You can feel the momentum shift right away and there. Houston scored another in the sixth inning, two more in the seventh to make it 7-1, making the game feel outside of Tampa.
Ryan Pressly in the game for the ninth inning, which could benefit them in Game 7. “data-reactid =” 40 “> Manny Margot tried to jump the Rays. He hit a solo homer in the seventh, then a two-run shot in the eighth it made it 7-4.Not enough for the Rays to return, but they managed to bring the Astros closer to Ryan Pressly in the game for the ninth inning, which could benefit them in Game 7.
The worst moment of the game did not cause a run on the scoreboard. Yandy Diaz got angry when Valdez walked him, almost to the point where the benches were cleared. It’s not clear what the cow is unless Diaz gets angry that he didn’t get something he could hit.
Interestingly, Carlos Correa moved in, refocused on his pitcher and did not let Valdez or the Astros derail the moment.
Charlie Morton. The 36-year-old veteran has a lot of big game experience from his days with the Rays and Astros. He achieved victory in ALDS Game 2 after setting up five pointless games against Houston. “Data-reactid =” 49 “> After losing their first three chances to win the series, the Rays still get a shot in Game 7 on Saturday. Manager Kevin Cash is likely to move on to Charlie Morton. The year-old veteran has had extensive game experience from his days with the Rays and Astros.He achieved success in ALDS Game 2 after throwing five unbeaten inings against Houston.
The Astros have several options. Those include right-hand man Lance McCullers Jr. He came off a great Game 2 where he hit the 11 Rays batter while allowing four runs (one earned) in seven innings.
A fun fact Game 7: When the Astros won the World Series in 2017, the McCullers started Game 7 against the Dodgers and Morton finished it, and got the win.
