Carlos Correa went with the fastball up and away, a mistake from JA Happ on his first pitch of the eleventh inning, and sent it several rows up the bleachers in right field to send the Astros to New York tied, 1–1.
Correa had been miserable in the postseason before Sunday night, when he doubled home Houston’s first run of the game and made a fairly unspectacular but important and much talked about play on a throw home to nab the potential go-ahead run in the sixth inning. He also flied out loudly to center before the homer.
Correa isn’t the only bat struggling in this series.
George Springer homered in the fifth to tie the game at two but he has been boom or bust with a lot more bust; Michael Brantley has been meh hitting between Springer and Jose Altuve; Yordan Alvarez has struggled against the Yankees’ lefties; Yuli Gurriel has been making tons of outs in the air.
If Game 2 ends up being a turning point for Correa, who has been in a funk for well over a calendar year now, the Astros have a leg up. I’m not so sure that will be the case though. I just haven’t seen nearly enough from him since the back injury of 2018 to think he’ll return to 2017 form.
New York Yankees
The Yankees’ lineup isn’t as deep as it was for most of the season now either for no reason other than some of the boppers aren’t producing.
DJ LaMahieu, Aaron Judge, and Gleyber Torres are hitting. Brett Gardner will always be tough and Aaron Boone has done a nice thing batting him fifth, right in the middle of things.
But not only did New York lose Giancarlo Stanton, who could shut it down for the series, it isn’t getting anything but strikeouts and pop-ups from Edwin Encarnacion and Gary Sanchez.
The lineup isn’t nearly as long as a result.
All together, I believe the scuffling offenses and aces on both sides add up to an easy under play.

Free Houston Astros vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction: it stays under.
Gerrit Cole is 18–0 with a 1.66 ERA since May. It is an unprecedented run and even if he isn’t on his game Tuesday he should still hold the Yankees to just two or three.
That would probably be enough for New York at home. Luis Severino is well-rested and will have the fastball pumping. If Houston doesn’t ambush him early, it probably won’t get to him at all and that Yankees’ bullpen will be rested after the day off Monday.
To me, this total should be a 7-flat, no questions asked. To get the hook is huge.
