HOUSTON – The reigning world champion Houston Astros showed their support for the Houston Rockets as the team aims for a championship of their own.
From Jose Altuve to Justin Verlander to George Springer, the Astros were decked in their Rockets finest as they left Minute Maid Park after Sunday’s 6-1 win against the Texas Rangers.
Both Verlander and Carlos Correa sported the No. 1 jersey. Verlander’s jersey was embroidered on the back with the Rocket’s motto, “Run As One.”
Lance McCullers took it old school and rocked a jersey featuring the Rockets logo from the late 90’s.
Even manager A.J. Hinch was decked in Rockets red.
The team posed for a picture in their Rockets gear before boarding a plane for California, where they will take on the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night.
The Rockets gave a hat tip to the Astros using “#HTownPride.”
The Rockets will meet the Golden State Warriors for Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals at 8 p.m. Monday at Toyota Center.
