The ALCS is heading for a Game 7 after the one of the most prolific offenses of the regular season finally got its shit together.

Jose Altuve had two hits and three RBIs while Justin Verlander was masterful yet again allowing no runs and five hits with eight strikeouts over seven innings pitched as the Astros beat up on the Yankees 7-1.

To add, Verlander attacked the strike zone once more throwing 99 total pitches with 70 hitting the strike zone. In total the former AL Cy Young winner has compiled 21 strikeouts and just one earned run over 15 innings pitched in the ALCS.

On the other side, the Yankees were held off the scoreboard until the 8th inning when Aaron Judge took Brad Peakcock deep. The Astros followed up the home half of the inning with a four run output to put the game out of reach.

Saturday night the winner take all Game 7 will feature CC Sabathia taking the hill for the Yankees while the Astros will go with Charlie Morton.
