The Astros' 2-1 win over the Yankees in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series presented by Camping World gave us a strong performance by Jose Altuve, who is simply masterful at his craft. And it appeared the theme of the night continued as his friend and teammate, Carlos Correa, gave us a beautiful play to witness on Friday night as well.

On a 1-0 pitch in the top of the sixth inning, Starlin Castro hit a grounder to Correa. Since Correa is, well, Correa, he made a stellar back-handed play. He tossed it across the diamond to Yuli Gurriel, who pulled off the bag during the reach, but could make the tag and get Castro out.
