Defensive Mistakes DOOM Astros; RAYS LEAD ALCS 2-0
Defensive mistakes made early by the Houston Astros in Game 2 ended up costing them the game.
With two outs and a runner on first, Astros second baseman Jose Altuve committed a mindless throwing error. That same error led to a three-run first inning after Rays outfielder Manuel Margot took Astros starter Lance McCullers Jr. deep to dead center field. The Rays would go on to win the game 4-2.
Tampa Bay now leads Houston 2-0 in the best-of-seven series.
