Houston comes back from 3-1

Houston comes back from being down 3-1 to win three straight games and shock the Boston Red Sox. Houston now meets the Washington Nationals in the Strat replay World SEries.

Charlie Morton delivered 9 solid innings as the Houston Astros defeated the
Boston Red Sox by a score of 8 to 0 at Minute Maid Park.

Evan Gattis had a big evening at the plate. He doubled with all three runners
coming home in the 1st inning, ripped a base-knock in the 3rd inning and
smacked a three-run homer in the 4th inning. Both teams’ bats went to sleep
after the 4th inning with no runs scored after that point.

Morton(1-1) went the distance for the shutout. Chris Sale(3-2) took the loss.
He allowed Houston 5 runs in 2 and 2/3 innings of work.

‘It’s almost like the ball was trying to hit my bat,’ Gattis said. ‘Whenever I
would swing, the ball found the sweet spot.’
