Rays beat Astros, advancing to the World Series while avoiding infamy

Stark Wild and Weird Astros Rays ALCS Game 7

Arozarena has homered seven times during the playoffs, just one shy of the big league record, and now has 47 total bases since the regular season ended. The precision that has come to define the Rays - in their fielding, their mound work and their tactical decisions - is in disarray. "I've never had more fun playing baseball than I did this year with this group of guys".

Tampa Bay snapped a three-game losing streak and prevented the Astros from matching the 2004 Boston Red Sox, the only major league team to rally from a 3-0 deficit to win a seven-game series.

The team awaits the victor of Game 7 of the National League Championship Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves. That game was started for Houston by Lance McCullers Jr., who will start again for the Astros in San Diego on Saturday. "It's just that after my second at-bat, I went in the cage". The highest-paid player (at $15 million) on Tampa Bay's budget roster has a career 2.86 earned run average in 12 career postseason games. He was also relieved with Astros runners threatening.

Fairbanks finished the game off, leaving a runner stranded in the ninth. Nick Anderson and Pete Fairbanks got the last ten outs, and the Rays are headed to the World Series. Even starter Tyler Glasnow, who threw 96 pitches in a Game 4 defeat on Wednesday, could be available. Framber Valdez pitched six strong innings, but the Astros still used four relievers in Game 6, including one inning from rising star Cristian Javier.


Tampa Bay also should have the advantage late if Game 7 is close after Houston used closer Ryan Pressly for the third straight night Thursday.

After they won Game 6 to send things to a Game 7, the team's spirit was praised, leading to Baker's amusing quote.

Anderson got the out after pitching two scoreless innings, allowing just three hits and a walk.
