Keuchel looks to continue success against Yankees in ALCS
14 October 2017, 01:12 | Franklin Nunez
The Yankees are built for the future thanks to young stars like Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez
But he was quick to point out that Keuchel's success certainly hasn't been limited to games against NY.
But Tanaka didn't survive the second inning May 14 against the Astros, who just got through knocking around Red Sox starting pitching for 16 runs in 11⅔ innings over four games. The Astros and the Yankees have played each other in seven games in the regular season.
"I have a ton of confidence in him", Girardi said of Tanaka. He struck out seven and scattered three hits over six innings to get the win in Houston's first trip to the postseason in a decade after years of rebuilding and losing.
Justin Verlander has a 1.88 ERA in his last nine postseason starts dating back to 2012. I don't know. Hearing Yankees manager Joe Girardi talk about how Frazier was the guy who stood up in the locker room with the Yankees down 2-0 to the Cleveland Indians has to tell you a little something, no?
"For that win in the wild-card game, it wasn't just special for me and the validation, it was special for everybody to go into NY and play that well", he said. He's 2-0 with a 3.12 ERA in the postseason. The Astros took five of those matchups, including a comeback victory at home on July 1. "I was so excited and I was like, 'OK, here we go.' It's not a secret that we had a good team before him, before trading for him, but after we did that it's like, 'OK, now we go, now we got everything we need.' And I was really happy we got him". The two are front-runners to MVP after Altuve led the majors with a.346 average and Judge was first in the AL with 52 homers.
Astros second baseman Jose Altuve is ready to help Houston beat the Yankees after enjoying a banner year.
Altuve has kept up his blistering pace in the postseason, where he's hitting.533 with three homers and four RBIs.
The 25-year-old Judge isn't daunted by his hard postseason.
"If the Yankees are going to do it against this particular team, they are going to really have to pitch well", Singleton said. "So just keep playing my game, keep having fun. just contribute any way I can".
If the game of baseball has entered some new evolutionary realm this season, populated by flame-throwing pitchers and all-or-nothing sluggers who together pushed home run and strikeout totals to record highs, the Houston Astros and New York Yankees represent its pinnacle - the most highly evolved species of this new era of baseball.
McHugh, who went 5-2 with a 3.55 ERA in 12 starts during an injury-plagued season, had been the odd-man out when manager A.J Hinch went with only 11 pitchers for their AL Division Series win over Boston. Houston's hasn't announced its rotation past Saturday.
