Gear up, Astros fans! ⚾ New ALCS merch now available after division series sweep against Seattle

HOUSTON – The Houston Astros swept the Seattle Mariners in a historic, long-lasting postseason game with a home run by shortstop Jeremy Peña Saturday night.

Fans across Houston have flocked to the Astros Union Station Team Store to grab the newest ALCS merch.

Academy stores across the Houston area are also carrying Astros winning gear.

“After six hours and 22 minutes, it was the most stressful, most exciting... what a way to bring the city together” Astros fan Patty Chesnick told KPRC 2′s Rilwan Balogun. “That’s one of the things I love about the Astros. No matter what’s going on, they bring it all. We have a great time and the city is behind them.”

The team took to the locker room to celebrate with a waterfall of champagne and beer following the victory.

“It’s a special moment for sure,” Astros SS Jeremy Peña told KPRC 2′s Randy McIlvoy, “It’s something you dream about as a kid. It was surreal. It was surreal to get back in and win.”

The Astros Team Store will remain open until 2 p.m. Sunday and will reopen at 9 a.m. Monday.
