The Astros return home ahead of the Philadelphia Phillies 3-2 in the World Series and with a chance to clinch their second title since 2017.
After several Astros fans expressed concern for Gurriel, Gurriel himself took to Twitter to let Astros fans know that everything was alright and that he should be ready for tomorrow.

Gurriel Provides Status Update
Gurriel said that he would get some treatment to see if he can heal in time for tomorrow’s Game 6.
He also made sure to thank Astros fans for their well wishes.
Despite having Mancini available to play first base if needed, losing Gurriel for the rest of the series would be a huge blow for the Astros.
The 38-year-old is having a strong postseason, hitting .347 with two home runs and an .850 OPS.
Gurriel is one of five holdovers from the Astros’ 2017 World Series team that captured the organization’s first title.
He has been a fixture at first base for the past seven years.
But Astros fans heard it from the man himself, who says that everything is going to be just fine and that he should be good to go for Game 6 after his early exit in Game 5.
The Astros will have Framber Valdez on the hill as they look to close out the World Series.
