BREAKING: We’re Baaaack! The Houston Astros are Going to the 2021 World Series

Photo by Elsa/ The promised land awaits, Astros fans! For the third time in five years, the Houston Astros capture the the AL Pennant! An absolute gem by Luis Garcia, bringing a no-hitter into the sixth inning.A clutch strikeout by Kendall Graveman, punctuated by Machete Maldonado throwing out the runner at second for a 7th inning strike ‘em out, throw ‘em out double play. A game just like every other this series, where Yordan Alvarez’ bat could. not. be stopped. A Kyle Tucker blast to rob the Red Sox of any remaining hope. The sum of these parts is what all of...

Photo by Bob Levey/ Luis Garcia goes for redemption and a trip to the World Series It’s Luis Garcia against Nathan Eovaldi in this elimination game for Boston in the ALCS. We last saw Garcia for one inning Saturday that we Houston fans would rather forget. And we last saw Eovaldi for one glorious inning Tuesday when the Astros’ fortunes made a dramatic turnaround. Luis Garcia is pitching around a sore knee. And does Eovaldi have any gas in the tank? This is as high-drama as it gets. Expect both teams to hold nothing back tonight in their quest for the World Series....

Astros’ Pitching Injuries Have Been an Issue All Season

Luis Garcia’s exit in Game 2 was the right-hander’s first tie to any sort of injury for all of 2021 and his first time leaving that early into a ballgame since April 25. The Houston Astros‘ pitching plan was thrown off course with Jake Odorizzi taking over, but pitching injuries have been a major factor […] Astros’ Pitching Injuries Have Been an Issue All Season - Climbing Tals Hill - Climbing Tals Hill - Houston Astros News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Photo by Ken Murray/Icon Sportswire via With the series tied 1-1 Jose Urquidy takes the mound in Fenway to re-take home field advantage for the Astros With injuries to starters Lance Mccullers and Luis Garcia, and the ineffectiveness in the playoffs of Framber Valdez, I don’t have to tell most of you Astros enthusiasts how important this game in Boston is, or how important that clutch Jose Urquidy show up big-time on the mound. But Boston has its own pitching problems. They send Eduardo Rodriguez to the mound. His 2021 ERA was 4.74, and in 6.2 IP this post-season...

Astros’ Luis Garcia Details Injury That Ended His ALCS Game 2 Start

When Luis Garcia was pulled from Saturday’s American League Championship Series start, some were skeptical. It was only the second inning, he had gotten rocked for a grand slam by the Boston Red Sox the inning earlier and already put one on in the second. His pace was plodding, and he clearly didn’t have it. […] The post Astros’ Luis Garcia Details Injury That Ended His ALCS Game 2 Start appeared first on NESN.com.

Luis Garcia exited Game 2 of the ALCS with right-knee discomfort, which led to an uproar of Boston Red Sox faithful calling the Houston Astros out on the situation. It wasn’t because Garcia left the game, but that Jake Odorizzi took close to 15 minutes to warm up. The reasoning is ignorant, while starting pitchers, […] Astros Game Today: Astros vs Red Sox Lineup, Odds, Prediction, Pick, Pitcher, TV Channel for October 18 - Climbing Tals Hill - Climbing Tals Hill - Houston Astros News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Astros: Should Jason Castro Pick Up a Start in the ALCS?

The Houston Astros dropped Game 2 of the ALCS, after an abysmal first two innings from Luis Garcia, who excited with right-knee discomfort, and Jake Odorizzi, who entered play with a 13-minute delay due to his warmup. Both pitchers surrendered grand slams to the Boston Red Sox (first team to hit two in a postseason game), as […] Astros: Should Jason Castro Pick Up a Start in the ALCS? - Climbing Tals Hill - Climbing Tals Hill - Houston Astros News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Astros: Luis Garcia and Chas McCormick named to Pipeline’s All-Rookie Team

MLB Pipeline’s All-Rookie Teams grace two Astros. On Tuesday, MLB Pipeline released their All-Rookie First Team and Second Team, as two Houston Astros were thrown on the teams. While a consistent postseason contender, it is understandable to not have many contributing rookies. But due to the departure of George Springer and injuries among the pitching […] Astros: Luis Garcia and Chas McCormick named to Pipeline’s All-Rookie Team - Climbing Tals Hill - Climbing Tals Hill - Houston Astros News, Rumors, and Fan Community

White Sox Get Their Revenge. Batter Astros 12-6 in Game 3

White Sox Get Their Revenge. Batter Astros 12-6 in Game 3

Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports Kyle Tucker’s four RBI not enough. Game 4 today in Chicago. The Astros came into Chicago last night thinking about a sweep of the South-siders on their way to their fifth consecutive ALCS. As it turned out, the main sticks being wielded were those by the White Sox hitters, with a hitting barrage that buried the Astros in Game 3 of the ALDS, 12-6. Astros starter Luis Garcia started shaky, allowing a leadoff single to Tim Anderson on a 3-2 count. After two well-hit lineouts, Yasmani Grandal walked, followed by an RBI single by Eloy...

Photo by Bob Levey/ Luis Garcia takes the mound as the Stros go for the sweep and their fifth straight ticket to the ALCS In the last week of the regular season the Astros didn’t look like they could hit a beach ball, much less compile 15 runs and 20 hits against a White Sox pitching staff headlined by Lance Lynn nad Lucas Giolito. But it’s playoffs, and the Astros are hoping they can keep it turned on against Dylan Cease. (13-7, 3.91 ERA). Cease has faced the Astros twice before this season, allowing nine runs in nine innings. The Astros counter with rookie Luis...
