On Tuesday, the Houston Astros advanced to the ALCS for the fifth straight time, this time with a 10-1 win over the Chicago White Sox in game four of the ALDS.

The Astros went down 1-0 early on in the game when Gavin Sheets hit a solo home run to center field in the bottom of the second, but they quickly responded with two runs in the top of the third. They also added three more runs in the top of the fourth, one in the top of the sixth and eighth, and three more in the 9th to pull away from the White Sox.

The Astros will now face off with the Boston Red Sox in the ALCS. This will mark the first postseason series between the two teams since the 2018 ALCS, when the Red Sox took down the Astros four games to one to advance to the World Series. The first game of the series will be on Friday, October 15 in Houston.
