While the Astros get to move onto their fourth World Series appearance in six years, the Yankees are again ending a season without a ring or even an appearance. The team has not made it to the World Series since 2009 – the last time New York won the title.

Since 2009, the Yankees have made five American League Championship Series and have lost them all. New York is the first team to lose five straight ALCS appearances, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

“I could sit here and make excuses about if a ball falls this way, a ball drops that way or a pitch is made here and there. But what it comes down to is they just played better than us,” Judge said after the game.

The Yankees were 2-5 during the regular season against the Astros. Houston and the Seattle Mariners were the only American League teams the Yankees were under .500 against.
