The Astros closed out the American League Championship Series with a dominant 5-0 win in Game 6 to beat the Boston Red Sox on Friday night at Minute Maid Park. That officially secured them their third trip to the World Series in five years.

The win caps three huge outings from the Astros over the Red Sox following their 9-2 win in Game 4 of the series and 9-1 win in Game 5. Boston managed to put up just three runs in 27 innings.

Yordan Alvarez put the Astros on the board in the first inning after hitting a deep RBI double to center field.

He then kicked off the sixth inning with a triple deep to the right field wall, and was hit in after WHO Tucker grounded out into a wild double play.

Though the Red Sox got runners on first and third in the seventh inning, pitcher Kendall Graveman struck Travis Shaw out swinging and then they got Alex Verdugo out at second after catching him stealing to escape the inning safely.

While the win was essentially already in the bag, the Astros made sure to close things out in the eighth.

Kyle Tucker hit a three-run homer with two outs to give them a 5-0 lead, which eventually became a five-run win after the Astros picked up three quick outs in the ninth to secure the victory.

KING TUCK!! @astros lead 5-0!

The Astros will take on either the Los Angeles Dodgers or Atlanta Braves in the World Series. The Braves hold a 3-2 series lead over the Dodgers headed into Saturday night’s Game 6 of the NLCS in Atlanta.

The Astros, who have made it to at least the ALCS in each of the past five seasons, won the World Series 4-3 over the Dodgers in 2017. They fell to the Washington Nationals 4-3 in 2019. A win in the series this year would mark the franchise’s third in team history.

This post will be updated with more information shortly.
