Abreu homers again to power Astros past Twins 3-2 and into 7th straight ALCS
José Abreu homered for the third time in two games for the Houston Astros in a 3-2 win over the Minnesota Twins
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — José Abreu homered for the third time in two games, a two-run rocket in the fourth inning that launched the Houston Astros to their seventh straight AL Championship Series appearance with a 3-2 win that eliminated the Minnesota Twins in Game 4 of their AL Division Series on Wednesday night.
José Urquidy gave the playoff-tested Astros another solid postseason start, withstanding home runs by Royce Lewis in the first and Edouard Julien in the sixth to hand the ball to the bullpen.
Hector Neris and Bryan Abreu combined for five strikeouts over 2 1/3 hitless innings. Ryan Pressly — who pitched five-plus years for the Twins before being traded to Houston in 2018 — struck out the side in the ninth.
Pressly froze Max Kepler with a full-count fastball to end it, leaving former Astros star Carlos Correa on deck.
