Game 2 ALCS Thread. October 12, 2020, 3:07 CDT. Astros @ Rays

Despite nine hits and more than a few “loud outs,” the Astros could not break through last night against Blake Snell and closer extraordinaire, Diego Castillo, losing 2-1. Jose Altuve’s first inning homer was never going to be enough, but it did put him into the all-time home run lead among second baseman in the LCS’s.

Still, the Astros have an excellent chance of tying the series if they continue to make the kind of contact they did yesterday against today’s starter, “Not the All-Star he once was,” Charlie Morton. His record is 2-2 this year in nine starts with a 4.
