Revisiting the walkoff wins in Astros playoff history

  Revisiting the walkoff wins in Astros playoff history The current era of Astros baseball has had its share of memorable playoff games and finishes. Saturday night brought another one that won't be forgotten anytime soon in Houston. Jose Altuve's two-run, walk-off homer to beat the Yankees in Game 6 to send the Astros to the World Series against the Nationals in one of Minute Maid Park's greatest finishes. Altuve also became the fourth player to notch a series-ending hit against the Yankees, joining the Pirates' Bill Mazeroski (1960 World Series), the Mariners' Edgar Martinez (1995 ALDS) and Diamondbacks' Luis Gonzalez (2001 World Series).

Houston can even things in Game 4 on Saturday night at Nationals Park. Washington will start $140 million lefty Patrick Corbin, while Houston manager A.J. Hinch declined to reveal his pitching plan when asked about it before Game 3.

Washington's eight-game winning streak, tied for the longest in a single postseason, ended with a sloppy performance in the first Series game hosted by the nation's capital since the Senators lost to the New York Giants in 1933.
