Sunday night was a beautiful night in the Bronx. The Captain, Derek Jeter, came back to Yankees Stadium to be immortalized. The number 2 will live forever in New York Yankees history. Mr. November is now next to legends like Joe DiMaggio, Babe Ruth, and Mickie Mantle. The Yankees were also fresh off a win against the Houston Astros in their doubleheader lineup. Then, the clock “stuck” six and the H-Town Express came in full force to crash the party of the Bronx Bombers.
In the top of the first inning, two home runs by George Springer and Josh Reddick put the Astros on the board. The hit of the night, however, came from Alex Bregman who hit a towering grand slam that put the Astros up for good.
Shift your attention to the southern most tip of the east coast, and the Astros continue their red-hot march through the majors by taking their talents to South Beach. The Miami Marlins have lost six of their last seven games. Their first game against the ‘Stros would not go any better.
The game was scoreless through five innings until the Marlins drew first blood. The H-Town Express then pulled into Miami and Yuli Gurriel came out swinging providing another grand slam. That was the first time in franchise history that grand slams have been hit in back-to-back games.
The Astros are sitting on top of the MLB with a 27-12 record. They have won seven out of their last eight games.
