Astros-Yankees: Seven Things To Know Before The ALCS
14 October 2017, 12:27 | Tracey Rhodes
Astros second baseman Jose Altuve is introduced before Game 3 of the ALCS against the Yankees on Monday Oct. 16 2017
Luis Severino will start Game 2 on Saturday.
Game one of the ALCS between the Yankees and Astros will be Friday at 6:08 p.m.in Houston, Texas. So it will be interesting to see them pitted against each other.
Jose Altuve just hit his second home run. NY was down 0-2 in the five-game series, but avoided elimination three times.
Brandon Weeden keeps getting hired, now with Titans
Mariota suffered the hamstring injury on his second-quarter touchdown run in the Titans' 57-14 loss to the Texans on Sunday. He started 20 games in Cleveland, going 5-15 while throwing more interceptions than touchdowns.
The stakes: The Yankees haven't played in the ALCS since 2012, an eternity when measured in Steinbrenner Years. "Houston, all year long, led by [Jose] Altuve and [Carlos] Correa, those type of players have been just wonderful at putting those runs on the board and punishing mediocre pitching". The Yankees' rotation was impressive against Cleveland after Sonny Gray's Game 1 flop. I think when you look at them it's a complete lineup throughout.
Houston Astros pitcher Collin McHugh is on the team's roster for their ALCS matchup against the New York Yankees. So if I wait until game three, you don't know if you're going to get there.
This was all part of a master plan for the Astros, mixing the young players they got when things weren't going well, with veterans like Carlos Beltran, Brian McCann, Reddick, and the ultimate in "go-for-it" gets, Justin Verlander. "They probably don't throw a ball under 95 [mph]". 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.
Yankees Relievers v. Astros Hitters: The Yankee bullpen features several really hard-throwing relievers.
Bucking the current trend in baseball, where strikeouts are tossed off as an acceptable by-product of a swing-for-the-fences approach at the plate, the Astros somehow manage to slug - their.478 slugging percentage ranked first in baseball and their 238 homers trailed only the Yankees - while striking out at a rate of just 17.3 percent of plate appearances, the lowest rate in the majors.
