Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa, and Alex Bregman stepped up for the Houston Astros and helped eliminate the Chicago White Sox with a 10-1 victory in Game 4 of their AL Division Series on Tuesday.

Altuve hit a three-run homer, stole a base, and scored four times, while Correa and Bregman each hit two-run doubles.

“It’s really special,” Correa said of winning the series. “I will never take these moments for granted, and I’m going to enjoy it with my teammates as much as I can. This is a special team, special organization.”

Astros pitcher Lance McCullers Jr. had to be pulled out in the fourth inning. The 28-year-old felt discomfort on his right forearm.

“I just started getting tight at the beginning of the [fourth] inning,” McCullers said. “I got out of it. We’ll see how I feel moving forward.”

Houston manager Dusty Baker was reluctant to take McCullers out, but he had no other choice.

“That was disheartening news to me when the trainer came over and said that we got to take him out of the game,” Baker said. “Lance is a warrior, and for him to come out of a game of that magnitude, you know it had to be something, and we tried to stop it before it got serious. He is being evaluated now.”

Next up, the Astros face the Boston Red Sox in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series at Minute Maid Park on Friday. The Red Sox defeated the Tampa Bay Rays with a 6-5 win in Game 4 on Monday to advance.

“They know how to play the game,” Altuve said of Red Sox. “They’ve been in the playoffs before, so it’s going to be fun.”
