After eliminating the New York Yankees in a Tuesday night wild card game, the Houston Astros travel to Kansas City to face the Royals on Thursday night.
The Astros blanked the Yankees, 3-0, so Houston tasted some champagne before leaving New York. And they’re coming for the entrée in Kansas City. That’s how veteran outfielder Jonny Gomes describes it.
“This is a whole different game,” said Gomes. “You think you go to a restaurant or other places, the appetizer is are normally the fastest part of the meal. Here, the appetizer is 162 games. The entrée is pretty quick.”
