Earlier in this American League Championship Series, Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman and manager A.J. Hinch talked about how so many of the players on their roster were born for October baseball — that they just have that winners’ mentality.

By now, it’s obvious second baseman Jose Altuve was born for October. His walk-off two-run home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning delivered the ALCS-clinching Game 6 win, 6-4, over the New York Yankees on Saturday night at Minute Maid Park.
