The Astros finished first in the majors in runs scored, team batting average, doubles, on-base percentage, slugging and OPS. They also finished second in home runs, only to the Yankees. New York, however, finished seventh in batting average, second in runs scored, third in on-base percentage and third in slugging.
MVP frontrunner Jose Altuve had a strong Division Series, hitting .533 with three homers and four walks. Aaron Judge, however, hit just .050 with 16 strikeouts against Cleveland. The Yankees have some quality hitters, but the Astros’ offense is just too strong and deep.
