New York Yankees at Houston Astros Preview


The stage is set for the American League Championship Series featuring the Houston Astros and New York Yankees.

The Astros booked a ticket to the ALCS for the second time in three seasons after beating the the Boston Red Sox three games to one in the AL Division Series.

Leading AL MVP candidate Jose Altuve is out to impress again after hitting three homers in the ALDS. The All-Star slugger will get help from Carlos Correa, Yuli Gurriel, George Springer and Alex Bregman.

ALCS Game 2 winning pitcher Dallas Keuchel (1-0) will take the mound for the Astros. The 29-year-old lefty struck out seven and gave up three hits and a run in 5 2/3 innings to lead Houston to an 8-2 victory. 

The Yankees, meanwhile, came back from a 0-2 series deficit to stun the top-ranked Cleveland Indians in the ALDS. Didi Gregorius smashed two homers to lead the AL wildcard champions to a 5-2 victory in Wednesday's Game 5 in Cleveland. 

Brett Gardner also drove in a run as the Yankees reached the ALCS for the first time since 2012 when they were swept by the Detroit Tigers. 

Rookie sensation Aaron Judge is hoping to do better against the Astros after registering only one hit in the ALDS. The 25-year-old right fielder led the AL in home runs in the regular season. 

Starting for the Yankees in the opener is Masahiro Tanaka, who struck out seven while giving up three hits in seven innings in their 1-0 win over the Indians in Game 3 of the ALDS last Sunday. The Japanese right-hander lost his only start against Houston in the regular season. 

This is the first postseason meeting between the two teams since the Astros beat the Yankees in the 2015 AL Wildcard Game. 

Despite their three-game winning run, we expect the Astros to win the opener of the best-of-seven series as they are playing at home and well-rested. They also won their regular-season series against the Yankees 5-2 including their last two meetings.
