Jose Altuve, who was a Yankees killer during his playoff bouts, was humbler after his play-winning Homer finished ninth in two runs which Astros had sent to their second World Series in the last three years.
"I faced Aroldis Chapman, [who] is one of the league's best closers," Altuve told the Post, "nothing is easy with him. I've just met a homer and I hope I can not see him again because he's so good, at the same time I was just thinking about what I can do I have my schedule I did not try to hit a homer I have only darü I thought about hitting the ball, coming to the base and keeping the momentum going. Thankfully the ball ran out and we won the game. "
