Justin Verlander was fired up at the end of the top of the sixth inning in Game 2 of the American League Championship Series tonight. So, too, was Kate Upton.
The Astros got out of a two-out jam in the top of the sixth when the Yankees tried to score on a booted ground ball to second base. The ball, hit by Brett Gardner, was booted by second baseman Jose Altuve. Houston shortstop Carlos Correa got to the ball and fired home in time to get to the runner, who tried to score from second.
Verlander escaped the inning with the game tied, 2-2.
The Astros’ ace was fired up on the field. FOX Sports 1’s cameras quickly panned to his wife, Upton, in a suite.
Upton was fired up, too:
