A look at which players stepped up during the first game of the Cleveland vs Houston series.

MLB
1

Alex Bregman - Astros

There were no runs scored in today's game until the fourth inning. That's when Bregman stepped to the plate. He not only delivered a solo shot to get his team on the board, but added to his impressive postseason total against some top notch pitchers. Bregman finished today's game 2-for-3 with two RBIs and a run scored.

2

George Springer - Astros

In today's Game 1 victory, Springer had a 2-for-4 outing. He was part of a back-to-back home run party in the fifth inning. His home run made it a 3-0 game at the time. He'd finish things with an RBI and two runs scored in an important momentum-building win in Houston.

3

Jose Altuve - Astros

The 2017 American League MVP delivered a solid hit for his team in the fifth inning. Altuve came to the plate right after his teammate George Springer had smashed one out of the park. So, naturally, Altuve swung and hit the second pitch for a 365-foot shot out of the park. That built Houston's lead to 4-0 in the fifth.
