Astros-Yankees: Seven Things To Know Before The ALCS

Astros-Yankees: Seven Things To Know Before The ALCS

The Astros are in the championship series for the first time since 2005. He joked that the lefty will probably feel better when he takes the mound and sees players in Yankees uniforms.

By the time his day was over, Sale had allowed six earned runs and nine hits, including six of the extra-base variety, while striking out six over five innings. He's a career.325 hitter with 16 home runs in postseason, including eight in 12 games for the Astros in 2004. Here, Jeff says, the matchup favors the Astros. "I mean, especially now seeing me and Bregman having so much success they are going to be more blocks of scouts going down there to find some talent", said Giles.

"I can recall Masahiro Tanaka saying through his interpreter after Game 3, 'We are going to win Game 4 then go back to Cleveland and take care of business.' It showed vast confidence even though they were down 1-2". In an era in which the strikeout is king, Keuchel is a throwback - a sinkerball specialist whose groundball rate of 66.8 percent was by far the highest in the game this season among pitchers with at least 100 innings pitched.

Jose Altuve smashed three home runs and propelled the Houston Astros to an 8-2 win over the Boston Red Sox on Thursday in Game 1 of the American League Division Series at Minute Maid Park. "But when I was behind the scenes and got to see these young guys play, perform and the way (Aaron) Judge came out this year, it's no surprise they're in the position they're in".

"It is a little insane", said McCann, the 33-year-old catcher who was traded by the Yankees to Houston last winter. The two teams will play Game 2 Saturday (Oct. 14) at 3 p.m.

Vast and efficient ocean wind farms 'could power human civilisation'
They explain that wind speeds are an average 70 percent greater over the Earth's oceans than on land. Wind turbines on wind farms continuously convert kinetic energy from surface winds into electricity.

Verlander may be the one who gets them there.

The Yankees will need that resolve again with the Astros perhaps even a tougher opponent than the Indians. 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. On the road, the Astros defeated the Yankees, 3-0.
