Astros to face Dodgers in World Series after shutting out Yankees in Game 7 of ALCS

HOUSTON – Fifty feet from home plate, Jose Altuve's bat hit ground. The baseball touched down 314 feet further, in the third row of the right-field seats. He had swung hard, and he had not let go. The smallest man on the field carried his weapon until he was certain that his fly ball was a home run, that his Houston Astros had a two-run lead, that their season was a step closer to lasting at least another week.
