Yankees Set Rotation For ALCS, Masahiro Tanaka Gets Game 1

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

Houston Astros pitcher Collin McHugh is on the team's roster for their ALCS matchup against the New York Yankees. His biggest win to date against them came in the 2015 AL wild-card game when he and the then-upstart Astros got a 3-0 win in the Bronx. He struck out nine times in those at-bats. It was a hole they fell into with a gut-wrenching Game 2 loss after manager Joe Girardi failed to challenge a play that opened the door for a stunning Cleveland rally.

"It's two really good teams going head-to-head", said Astros catcher Brian McCann, who was a Yankee just 11 months ago.

Keuchel gets the nod in the opener after pitching behind Justin Verlander in the ALDS.

He was one to watch going into the ALDS and after after going 8-for-15 with a.632 on-base percentage and just two strikeouts in four ALDS games against the Boston Red Sox he'll be one to watch going into the World Series if the Astros win this series. "I was the guy who provided that little bit of information for (Gregorius on adjustments). So I have all the confidence in the world".

Tanaka was 13-12 with a 4.74 ERA in 30 regular-season starts. 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.

The resolution also criticised Israel's activities at holy places in Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank. The US is pulling out of the UN's cultural organisation Unesco , accusing it of "anti-Israel" bias.

Verlander's performance afforded the bullpen a five-run edge entering the seventh, which proved to be all the breathing room the home team needed.

Ace Dallas Keuchel will start for the Astros against Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka.

Gonzalez only hit.200 in the ALDS, but he'll get more pitches to hit than those further up the lineup and a clutch hit or two could turn the tide of the series.

Biggest Horses: Expect the Astros to ride their biggest horses in this series - Verlander, Keuchel, Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa and George Springer.

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

"If the Yankees are going to do it against this particular team, they are going to really have to pitch well", Singleton said.

The 25-year-old Judge isn't daunted by his hard postseason. "So just keep playing my game, keep having fun. just contribute any way I can".

The Yankees' bullpen depth has rescued them this postseason, beginning in the wild card game against Minnesota, when starter Luis Severino was yanked after recording just one out, leaving 26 outs for the bullpen to cover - which it did, with 10 from Robertson, seven from Kahnle, six from Green and the last three from Chapman.

In that series, Tanaka pitched for NY in Game 3 allowing 3 hits, while striking out 7 and walking 1 in New York's 1-0 win. Houston's hasn't announced its rotation past Saturday.
