  • Astros starting Keuchel in Game 1, Verlander in Game 2

But he was quick to point out that Keuchel's success certainly hasn't been limited to games against NY. "When we made the move to pitch Verlander in Game 4 out of relief we had the backdrop that Dallas was going to start Game 5". "But now we look back on it and it's probably one of the most magical times that I'll have in my career and it's something I'll never forget, for sure". The Astros and the Yankees have played each other in seven games in the regular season.

Game one of the ALCS between the Yankees and Astros will be Friday at 6:08 p.m.in Houston, Texas.

"I know there's a confidence level", Hinch said.

Verlander v. Severino: In Game 2, Luis Severino starts for the Yankees while Justin Verlander starts for the Astros. He went 8-for-15 in the division series and homered three times in Game 1, prompting Red Sox star Mookie Betts to best sum up the challenge of figuring out how to beat Altuve: "I'm not exactly sure what a game plan for him is".

"Just because it's the Yankees you kind of get a little more amped and a little more jittery because it is the pinstripes and such a storied organization", Keuchel said. For the postseason, Yankees relievers have posted a 2.20 ERA while striking out 42 batters in 28 2/3 innings and limiting opposing hitters to a.153 batting average and a.474 OPS.

"His stuff was great the other day, he's had some really big starts, his last two starts have been outstanding", manager Joe Girardi said. The Yankees manager added that Tanaka can get on a roll and put together a run of strong starts and the team will need one of them on Friday.

There are a good number of well-known Astros, including Correa, Jose Altuve and George Springer, but one of the secret weapons on offense is Yuli Gurriel, who led the majors with a 25 percent hard-hit rate.

Altuve has kept up his blistering pace in the postseason, where he's hitting.533 with three homers and four RBIs.

Chatter about Girardi's future in the Bronx has been muffled since the Yankees became only the 10th team to win a best-of-five series after dropping the first two games.

The 25-year-old Judge isn't daunted by his hard postseason. "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". "So just keep playing my game, keep having fun. just contribute any way I can". The New York Yankees completed their comeback Wednesday night, defeating the AL regular season leaders Cleveland Indians in Game 5. Houston's hasn't announced its rotation past Saturday.
