Houston won Games 1 and 2 by scores of 2-1, with starters Dallas Keuchel and Justin Verlander shutting down the Yankees bats and allowing the team to do just enough to win. Charlie Morton failed to keep the momentum going, allowing seven earned runs in 3.2 innings of work.
Houston saw reliever Will Harris give up another run in one-third of an inning, but then Collin McHugh got the bullpen back on track with four shutout innings of long relief.
The New York Yankees climbed back into the American League Championship Series on Monday at Yankee Stadium, defeating the Houston Astros 8-1 in Game 3 to cut the series deficit to 2-1.
As he has done so many times this season, starting pitcher CC Sabathia stopped the bleeding for the Yankees, throwing six shutout innings while striking out five. Aaron Judge and Todd Frazier provided the spark on offense, with both players smacking three-run homers.
The Yankees avoided going down three games to none, a playoff precipice that only one team has ever come back from (2004 Boston Red Sox against the Yankees, in case you forgot).
With the series rejuvenated and the Yanks looking to secure another win at home before heading back to Houston, here’s a look at the viewing info for Game 4.
