Gattis struck first in the fourth inning with a solo shot to left center off of Yankees starter CC Sabathia to put Houston in front 1-0.
It was McCann’s turn an inning later as Alex Bregman fielded Todd Frazier’s grounder and quickly fired home to nab Greg Bird at the plate. McCann handled the difficult throw flawlessly and was able to put the tag on Bird to record the out.
I know it wasn't that long of a throw, but to hit the exact spot necessary to get the runner out is incredible pic.twitter.com/9UL9abALJV— Timothy Burke (@bubbaprog) October 22, 2017
McCann wasn’t finished as his two-run double in the bottom half of the inning pushed Houston’s lead to 4-0.
Seems like as good a time as any to remind everyone that it was the Yankees who traded McCann to the Astros prior to the season.
Not pictured is former Braves pitcher Charlie Morton who got the start in Game 7 for Houston and allowed just two hits over five shutout innings.

The Dodgers are hoping to get one of their key players back in time for the World Series. Corey Seager missed the NLCS with a back injury but Los Angeles still defeated the Cubs 4-1 to advance to the World Series.
No surprise here but Vegas has the Dodgers as the favorites to win the World Series.
