There appears to be no stopping these Astros.
With the season on the line, Houston pulled off a little postseason magic in Game 5 of the American League Divisional Series. The Astros advanced to the ALCS for the third consecutive season Thursday, defeating the Tampa Bay Rays 6-1 in the fifth and final game of the divisional round.
While the team celebrated in the clubhouse, fans celebrated on Twitter.
