Gurriel homers twice as Astros punch playoff ticket

HOUSTON (AP) The Houston Astros toasted a playoff berth in a private moment, and then moved on to their next goal.

"You've got to take it step by step so it's nice to acknowledge and celebrate it because you don't take it for granted," right-hander Gerrit Cole said. "But we've got some more work to do."

Yuli Gurriel hit a grand slam and a two-run homer on his way to a career-high seven RBIs, and the Astros secured a spot in the postseason with an 11-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night.
