Yankee Elimination Day Draws Nigh, Empire Falls, 7-1

Justin Verlander continued his dominance of The Bronx Embalmers, with seven shutout innings of work in Houston's 7-1 smiting of The Evil Empire last night. The win evened the ALCS at three games apiece—setting up a national celebration of Yankee Elimination Day later this evening. Jose Altuve lined a HR and knocked in three total runs in the victory. Ex-Pinstriped Poser Brian McCann opened the scoring with a one-run double, then Altuve followed with a two-run single in the fifth. The 'Stros broke it open with a four-run eighth. (Getty Images)
