Rays Thwart Astros’ Comeback as well as also Reach Their Second World Series

The Tampa Bay Rays escaped coming from the brink on Saturday, reaching their second World Series having a 4-2 victory over the Houston Astros in Game 7 of the American League Championship Series in San Diego.

The Rays, who had the A.L.’s best record inside abbreviated regular season, at 40-20,  had been in danger of joining the 2004 Yankees as the only teams in baseball history to lose a best-of-seven series after taking a 3-0 lead. although the Rays took an early lead as well as also held off Houston, leaving the Boston Red Sox as the only team to complete such a comeback.

“The Astros had all the momentum; the idea was up to us to change the idea around,” Rays Manager Kevin Cash said, adding later, “What the idea says about the club is usually, we’re a truly Great team as well as also we can withstand some lumps. All Great teams show the ability to rebound, as well as also we did.”

Tampa Bay’s only previous World Series appearance came in 2008, when the Rays fell in all 5 games to the Philadelphia Phillies. They will face the winner of Game 7 of the National League Championship Series on Sunday between the Los Angeles Dodgers as well as also the Atlanta Braves.
