Texas won 5-4 in the second game of the 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) American League Championship Series (ALCS, best of 7) against Houston held at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas, USA on the 17th (Korean time).
Texas, which won both games 1 and 2 of the championship series held in enemy territory, is only two wins away from advancing to the World Series.
This year, they showed off their spirit by winning all 7 games in the postseason.
Texas starter Nathan Evaldi became the winning pitcher after pitching 6 innings, allowing 5 hits, 1 walk, 9 strikeouts, and 3 runs.
The batting line focused on 5 hits in the top of the first inning and scored 4 runs to take the lead.
Adolis Garcia went 1-for-3 with one RBI and one run scored, while Mitch Garber and Jonah Haim contributed to the victory with one hit and one RBI.
Houston’s shock was even greater as they lost despite using Justin Verlandon in the first game and Framber Valdez in the second game.
Valdez became the losing pitcher on this day, allowing 7 hits, 1 walk, and 5 runs (4 earned runs) in 2⅔ innings.
Houston’s main hitter, Jordan Alvarez, played hard by hitting two solo home runs, but was unable to smile due to the team’s loss.
Game 3 of the championship series between Texas and Houston will be held at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas at 9:03 a.m. on the 19th.
