Yankee Elimination Day! Astros Head To World Series

Now, we can all just relax and enjoy the World Series. It almost doesn't matter whether the Dodgers or Astros ultimately win—it's more than enough that The Bronx Embalmers won't. Down three-games-to-two, Houston pitching shut down the Yankee offense in Games 6 & 7 (one run), at the same time that the Astro bats heated up. In four games in Houston, The Evil Ones scored a grand total of three runs. Evan Gattis and Jose Altuve clouted solo HRs and ex-Pinstriped Poser Brian McCann knocked in two more in the eventual 4-0 shutout. Charlie Morton and Lance McCullers combined to limit New York to just three hits on the night. All Hail, Yankee Elimination Day! (Getty Images)
