The Astros head to Minnesota for Games 3 and 4 of the American League Division Series Tuesday and Wednesday after the Twins dumped Houston 6-2 in Game 2 Sunday night at Minute Maid Park.
Former Astros star Carlos Correa put on a show in the game, going 3 for 4 with a walk and three RBIs and even ended the game with a nice defensive play at short.
We also discuss how, normally in the playoffs, the team with home field advantage considers it a failure to split the opening two games, but this year's Astros ballclub has had its success primarily on the road. So, maybe a split is just fine. However, Balke notes that any loss in a short series like this best-of-five can be problematic.
