Astros starting Keuchel in Game 1, Verlander in Game 2

  • Luis Severino is done early in Game 2 despite giving up just one run

NY has been propelled by the home run machine, rookie Aaron Judge.

The most important thing of the night: Will the Judge be back in session? He allowed three hits and struck out seven in seven scoreless innings in a 1-0 victory. Surely, the Astros were taking notes.

Tanaka was 13-12 with a 4.74 ERA in 30 regular-season starts. The southpaw has a 0.96 ERA in three postseason starts in Houston, and he put together a strong outing of 5.2 innings in Game 2 of the ALCS against the Red Sox.

The Astros tacked on two runs in the sixth thanks to a two-run single from catcher Brian McCann, which was more than enough cushion for a pitching staff that was generally sharp. Both have had big moments throughout this season and both have not forgotten where they came from. It's not a stretch to imagine this series being decided by what happens when the Yankees' powerful bullpen goes to work against the most relentless offense in the game. While the Yanks were embarking on their improbable comeback against the Indians, the Astros were at home eating popcorn. And it doesn't hurt that they wound up with home-field advantage.

Is Razer launching its own phone?
The company had previously purchased Nextbit , a smartphone maker known for its Robin phone - a phone optimised for cloud storage. It could very well be a tablet/phone/gaming device hybrid, which would make Razer a direct competitor of the Nintendo Switch.


Also, they will exact some revenge on Keuchel, who shut them out for six innings and outdueled Tanaka in the 2015 wild-card game at Yankee Stadium. NY was down 0-2 in the five-game series, but avoided elimination three times. "Good luck, I guess".

Luis Severino will start Game 2 on Saturday. Yankees hitters are 19-for-103 (.184) with four walks and 35 strikeouts against him.

"I just couldn't get out of my head: 'I didn't think I'd be here. I love being able to represent them and I try and play, I play hard everyday all the people that have helped me in New Mexico to get to this point", said Houston third baseman Alex Bregman. But that could also mean that they're ripe for a Game 1 letdown. But New York showed itself as a force to be reckoned with by rallying from two games down to oust the Indians. "Houston, all year long, led by [Jose] Altuve and [Carlos] Correa, those type of players have been just wonderful at putting those runs on the board and punishing mediocre pitching". This isn't the time to start betting against them.
