PHOTOS: Justin Verlander’s Wife Kate Upton Is Thrilled The Astros Are Back Alive In The ALCS

With their encouraging 8-5 victory over the Texas Rangers, the Houston Astros are officially back alive in the ALCS.

The road win in hostile Arlington was much-needed for an Astros team that was absolutely lifeless in the first two games of the series in Houston. 

Now down 2-1, the Astros once again believe that they can win the series against their hated in-state rivals and make it back to the World Series.

Houston ace Justin Verlander is anxiously waiting his chance to pitch again.

He was very solid in Game 1 of the series but received no run support as the Astros fell 2-0 in front of their home crowd. 

May I remind you that Verlander is married to supermodel Kate Upton?…

“He gets down on one knee and he pops open the ring box,” Upton told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.

“In my mind I was like, ‘Don’t look at the ring. He’s going to think you’re materialistic…’”
