Astros Season Ends in 4-2 Loss To Rays in ALCS Game 7

SAN DIEGO (AP) - The Astros fell behind early and never caught up in a 4-2 loss to Tampa Bay in ALCS Game 7 on Saturday night, coming up short of an astonishing series comeback after three consecutive victories.

Houston swept favored Minnesota in the wild-card round and then bashed 12 homers in a four-game division series victory over Oakland.

The Astros lost the first three games of the ALCS by a combined 11-5 to the deep, talented Rays. Rather than giving up, Houston became the second team in baseball history to win three straight after being down 0-3 in a playoff series.
