García, Alvarez help Astros oust Red Sox, reach World Series

HOUSTON (AP) Two of the youngest Houston Astros stars helped one of baseball's oldest managers get another shot at a most elusive title.

Rookie Luis Garcia showed the poise of an October ace, MVP Yordan Alvarez did more damage at the plate and the Astros earned yet another trip to the World Series, beating the Boston Red Sox 5-0 Friday night in Game 6 of the AL Championship Series.

Garcia and Alvarez, both 24 and ascending, and 72-year-old manager Dusty Baker will open the World Series on Tuesday night, either at Dodger Stadium or home against Atlanta. The Braves lead Los Angeles 3-2 in the NL Championship Series going into Game 6 Saturday night.
