Sports Monday: Astros Up 2-0 On Yankees, And Rockets Season Preview

The Astros look to take a commanding 3-0 lead in the ALCS at Yankee Stadium tonight. And the Rockets prepare to start a new season — with a new star and a new owner. We discuss all the latest Houston sports news with Jeff Balke.

Jose Altuve Scores The Winning Run
Astros’ second baseman Jose Altuve scores the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning of Game 2 of the ALCS over the New York Yankees to give Houston a 2-0 lead in the 7-game series.

The Astros take on the Yankees tonight (Oct. 16) in Game 3 of the ALCS at Yankee Stadium. The Astros lead the series 2-0 after two thrilling wins at Minute Maid Park over the weekend, including a walk-off win the bottom of the ninth inning Saturday.

Also, the Texans roughed up the winless Cleveland Browns Sunday, 33-17. The Rockets prepare to start the regular season (with a new owner) by traveling to Golden State Tuesday night (Oct. 17) to face the defending champs. And the Dynamo secured a playoff spot.
