HOUSTON — The eruption bubbled deep within Minute Maid Park for much of Friday afternoon. The Astros had traffic all over the bases versus the White Sox, getting a sac fly, benefiting from some strolls and coming through with some clutch songs.
Still, you had the sensation baseball’s highest-scoring offense had something more. You had the feeling a huge swing was coming. You had the feeling the Astros will break out.
The Astros did simply that in the seventh inning, getting a two-run double from Carlos Correa and a two-run homer by Kyle Tucker to top a five-run outburst and send out Houston to a 9-4 success over the White Sox in Game 2 of the American League Division Series. The Astros lead the best-of-five series, 2-0.
