Astros near another World Series, new  blood helps to  dominate Yankees

Chas McCormick struck the  ball hard before going unconscious.

The way sportsmen react  under pressure, particularly  when hitting a 98 mph fastball  out of the park.

He initially believed his  swing against Gerrit Cole in the second inning was a foul ball.

Anthony Rizzo, the first baseman for the New York Yankees, was facing him with his large  shoulders hunched.

The ball continued to travel  for a further 330 feet to right  field, which was more than  enough to clear the wall that  was 314 feet from home plate.

Long after the 47,000  spectators had taken their  seats at Yankee Stadium on a  late Saturday afternoon.

In a Game 3 of this American League Championship Series  go-for-the-kill effort,  McCormick had staked his  team to a two-run lead.

He instantly recalled the dozen  or so family members and friends, including his twin brother Jason and his girlfriend, who were watching from the stands as he rounded the bases.

Before running across  teammates who entertained  him with the "Chas Chomp," he waved to them as an old  pro would.

With this being the team's sixth straight trip to the ALCS, McCormick is beginning to  appear more at ease in his position, just as other players  are beginning to take the lead.
