Empire Of Blights: Evil Ones Lose Again In Houston, 2-1

Just two more losses and The Bronx Embalmers will take to the links for the balance of October. Today, Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa teamed up to smite The Pinstriped Posers by the same 2-1 score they put on them yesterday. Altuve smacked a ninth-inning, one-out single on a 100-MPH fastball from Aroldis "I'm Not On the Cubbies Anymore" Chapman. A gap shot by Correa—coupled with a missed cut-off by Aaron "K" Judge—led to the winning run scored by the fleet better-be AL MVP Altuve. A throwback complete-game performance by Justin Verlander (124 pitches) set the tone for the 'Stros, who take a commanding two-games-to-none lead back to The Concrete Bunker On 161st Street. It's just a matter of time. (Getty Images)
