Girardi mum on future: 'There's no guarantees'

Joe Girardi, whose four-year, $16 million contract is up at the end of the season, is uncertain if he will be back as Yankees manager in 2018 but said "I love what I do" and that he would consult with his family before making any decision.

Brian McCann said he took no additional pleasure in beating his former team, the Yankees, who traded him to the Astros last November as part of their rebuild. "I love that organization," McCann said. "I have lifelong friends over there that I'll be talking to when I'm in my 70s and 80s."

Astros beat Yankees 4-0 in Game 7, reach World Series

Charlie Morton and Lance McCullers combined for a three-hitter, Jose Altuve and Evan Gattis homered and the Houston Astros reached the World Series, blanking the New York Yankees 4-0 Saturday night in Game 7 of the AL Championship Series.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

What an awesome performance from Charlie Morton and Lance McCullers to pitch the Astros into the second World Series in franchise history. The two combined for a three-hit, 11-strikeout shutout. They threw 108 pitches -- 77 of them curveballs. The Yankees had no chance and we have the first World Series matchup between 100-win teams since the Reds and Orioles in 1970.

Verlander named MVP after Games 2, 6 heroics

It took ALCS MVP Justin Verlander pitching seven scoreless innings in Game 6 to help Houston extend the series, but the Astros were finally able to put away the upstart Yankees in Saturday night's Game 7 en route to their first World Series since 2005.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

The Yankees season ends with a 4-0 loss to the Astros in Game 7 of the ALCS. While it is not the finish they wanted, their year still must be considered a success for a club a lot of people thought wouldn't even make the playoffs. Led by Aaron Judge, the Yankees have a young core that should allow them to return to future October and possibly advance further in the playoffs.

Springer makes leaping grab over teammate (0:48)

When the Yankees signed Brian McCann to a five-year, $85 million contract in December of 2013, they could only dream of him ripping a two-run double in an ALCS Game 7 they were playing in. However, he is doing it for the opposite team. McCann, who was traded by the Yankees to the Astros this past winter, nailed a two-run double off the Yankees' Tommy Kahnle to open up a four-run lead for Houston. The Yankees are still paying McCann around a third of his $15M salary this year.

Brian McCann is doing a number on his former team in Game 7 of the ALCS. Not only did the Astros catcher somehow hold the ball and make a tag as Greg Bird slid feet-first into home plate in the top of the fifth inning, but he ripped a two-run double to right field in the bottom of the inning.

Los 5 jonrones de José Altuve son la segunda mayor cantidad para un venezolano en una sola postemporada, rompiendo empate con Miguel Cabrera (5). En primer lugar continúa Pablo Sandoval, quien conectó 6 en los playoffs de 2012.

El venezolano José Altuve ha conectado 5 cuadrangulares con los Astros de Houston en postemporada, la segunda mayor cantidad en la historia de la franquicia después de los 8 de Carlos Beltrán en 2004.

The Yankees' Tommy Kahnle saved CC Sabathia in the fourth. Sabathia handed the ball to Kahnle with two men on and one out. Kahnle induced the Astros' George Springer to hit into a 6-4-3 double play. Sabathia struggled, but only only allowed an Evan Gattis homer before being pulled.
