Game 6 was not without dispute. After New York scored a breakthrough in the second inning, Yankees striker Bret Gardner had two hits against him by home referee Marvin Hudson that seemed to be questionable in the replay. The Yankees then had two runners on base, with two outs, and Houston led 3-1.
In the seventh inning of Houston, striker Michael Bruntley made a dive into left field and turned it into a double play, catching new York referee Aaron, who was too far from first base.
Houston had a chance to end the game in the top of the ninth, but New York's LaMahieu broke a two-run home run to tie the game.
But at the bottom of the inning, with a runner on base, Altue won the game with his home run.
"I ask to describe Jose Altue all the time," Astros manager AJ Hinch said after the match. "I think MVP is what he is."
The loss to New York means that this will be the tenth consecutive year in which the Yankees – the historically dominant baseball franchise – will not appear in the World Series.
