The Houston Astros win the ALCS battle 4-2, but the war is not over yet!

It was October 17, 2018. One year and one day ago that the Houston Astros were faced with the same challenge as the Yankees. It was Game 5 of the ALCS against the Boston Red Sox. It was the bottom of the 9th, and memories of Game 5 of the 2017 WS coursed through the minds of every fan in the Park as Alex Bregman headed to the plate, his bat bouncing off of his back.

With every fan standing on their feet ready to jump for joy and holding their breath, Andrew Benintendi threw the final punch in an epic play that is forever etched in the brain of every Astros fan watching.
