In a season where so much has been done about the Astros’ inability to hit, it was a walk that gave them the playoff advantage

Jose Altuve had a two-strikeout, goal-laden in the ninth inning to help the Astros beat the Twins 4-1 in Game 1 of their playoff series on Tuesday at Target Field

The Astros had runners in the first and second row with two outs in the ninth when George Springer hit a ground ball against Twins shortstop Jorge Polanco who should have ended the inning Instead , Polanco made a stray throw at second base, allowing everyone to safely reach and set up Altuve’s dramatic batting

Greinke had a rough start, leading the goals in the first inning, but settled in and allowed a run on just two hits in four innings

The run he gave up came when Nelson Cruz delivered a two-out double that took an odd jump off the right-field wall and bounced off Josh Reddick’s head Carlos Correa’s stint came close knock down the runner at home plate, but Max Kepler narrowly beat the pitch

After just four innings and 79 shots, Greinke was drawn in favor of Valdez, who was arguably the Astros’ best starting pitcher in the regular season. Valdez struggled to locate the strike zone when he entered, walking the first two hitters he saw before settling in and pitching four innings of relief without a hit

Valdez pitched the last five innings, shutting out the Twins and giving up just two hits in the last five frames

The Astros leveled things in the seventh when Reddick, Martin Maldonado and George Springer delivered three straight two-out singles Reddick scored the tying point on Springer’s base, but Maldonado was sent off trying to pass from first to the third
