We are the Houston Astros. We do not give up.”
Houston won 10-3 in Game 4 of the 2023 Major League Baseball Postseason American League Championship Series (ALCS) against the Texas Rangers held at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, on the 20th (Korean time).
Houston succeeded in taking the lead in the top of the first inning. Jose Altuve’s double and Mauricio Dubon’s single gave the team a chance to reach first and third base with no outs. They then took the lead with Alex Bregman’s 2-RBI, timely triple. Then, Jordan Alvarez’s 1 RBI hit widened the lead to 3-0.메이저놀이터
Texas’ counterattack was also formidable. The chase began with leadoff hitter Adolis Garcia’s one-run home run in the bottom of the second inning. Mitch Garber then walked and Nathaniel Rowe reached base with a double. With one out and runners on second and third base, Josh Young hit a sacrifice fly RBI. Afterwards, Corey Seager’s one-run home run in the bottom of the third inning balanced the score.
In a situation where the atmosphere could have been handed over to Texas, Houston’s bat came out on fire. In the top of the fourth inning, Martin Maldonado and Altuve got on base with walks, and then Dubon’s hit gave them a chance to load the bases with no outs. After Bregman struck out, Jordan Alvarez’s sacrifice fly RBI gave them the lead again. Then, Abreu exploded with a three-run home run. In an instant, they ran away to 7-3.
MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, said, “Houston is trying to become the 15th team in history to win a series after losing the first two games in a best-of-seven postseason series,” and added, “They are 2 wins and 2 losses. “The team that won Game 5 won the series 46 out of 65 times.”
“This is our team,” Maldonado said. “We’ve been in this situation many times. We take it one game at a time. We always believe in what we can do as a team.”
Abreu, who went 1 hit in 3 at-bats (1 home run), 2 walks, 3 RBIs, and 2 runs, said, “We are the Houston Astros. We never give up. It’s up to us to turn this situation around,” and “I had a really good swing at the plate.” “It was important to do it,” he said.
