Yankees- Astros finished the three-game series Sunday afternoon at Minute Maid Park in Houston with the rivalry being alive and well in 2021. The back-and-forth began with Aaron Judge where he trolled Altuve after covering up his jersey while he was rounding the bases.
The on-field squabbling continued Sunday when Astros catcher Martín Maldonado responded to Judge's trolling. After Maldonado hit a 371-foot home run to right field over Judge's head to tie the game at 1-1 in the third inning, he gestured to his unbuttoned jersey. Just a few innings later, Altuve capped off the comeback with a three-run, walk-off home run off an 85-mph curveball from Chad Green.
After the game, a fan wearing a Yankees jersey went viral on social media for rooting for the Astros after Altuve hit the walk-off. Social media decided to go in on him afterwards.
