Verlander, Altuve help Astros top Yanks to force ALCS Game 7

HOUSTON (AP) Justin Verlander remained perfect with the Houston Astros when they couldn't afford anything else.

The ace right-hander pitched seven shutout innings and Jose Altuve homered and drove in three runs during a 7-1 victory over the New York Yankees on Friday night that extended the AL Championship Series to a decisive Game 7.

"He's been everything that we could have hoped for and more," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said about Verlander. "He chose to come here for games like this and beyond."
