A similar move had backfired on Cash in Game 6 when he took starter Blake Snell out of the game in the fifth inning and reliever Diego Castillo allowed four runs to score in what proved to be a 7-4 victory for the Astros. "But there's no denying this is a frustrating spot to be in". "And if you don't know the name by now, they better learn them, because we've we got some boys who can play". Houston was also one of two teams to reach the playoffs despite a losing record in the regular season. The precision that has come to define the Rays - in their fielding, their mound work and their tactical decisions - is in disarray. "We've got a track record of it, and we bet we're going to get back to playing really clean, efficient baseball".

Tampa Bay snapped a three-game losing streak and prevented the Astros from matching the 2004 Boston Red Sox, the only major league team to rally from a 3-0 deficit to win a seven-game series.

Morton is the first major leaguer to earn the victory in four winner-take-all games, including Game 7 of the 2017 World Series and Game 7 of the 2017 ALCS against the Yankees when he was with Houston. That game was started for Houston by Lance McCullers Jr., who will start again for the Astros in San Diego on Saturday.

The Houston Astros just refuse to go away. Tampa Bay was up two runs early and tacked on some insurance later in the game. He was also relieved with Astros runners threatening.

Fairbanks worked around a one-out single in the ninth to close it for a save.

The Tampa Bay Rays, a team of anonymous stars, are headed to the World Series after holding off baseball's most infamous team. Even starter Tyler Glasnow, who threw 96 pitches in a Game 4 defeat on Wednesday, could be available. The last time the franchise played in the Fall Classic was in 2008, when they lost to the Philadelphia Phillies. He hit four homers and drove in six runs for the Rays.

Anderson got the out after pitching two scoreless innings, allowing just three hits and a walk.

In the second inning, Mike Zunino hit a solo home run to put Tampa Bay up three runs.
