The Tampa Bay Rays are the ALCS winners after knocking off the Houston Astros in Game 7 earlier tonight by a 4-2 final score. It is their second World Series berth in franchise history, the other coming in 2008.

Randy Arozarena blasted a two-run home run in the 1st inning for the Rays, who were able to prevent an Astros series comeback after originally leading three games to none. Mike Zunino also homered for the Rays.

Charlie Morton, who won the World Series with Houston in 2017, held down the fort for the Rays by throwing 5 2/3 shutout innings.

The Rays will face either the Los Angeles Dodgers or the Atlanta Braves, who are going to face off in a Game 7 of their own on Sunday night.
