The Astros have won back to back tight ball game thanks to great pitching and timely offense. Their second 2-1 win in a row was one in very dramatic fashion on Saturday evening.
Houston could not have asked for better starting pitching in the first couple of games. They hand the ball to Charlie Morton here. Morton has been good this season but his upside is limited.
You would think that at some point in the series things start to open up. If so I like the chances of Houston going up 3-0 in the series. They have yet to really mash on offense in this series.
New York Yankees
It is never good to be down 0-2 in a series but the Yankees have to be feeling OK about the fact that both losses were by just a single run. This game is a must have though.
CC Sabathia has had an up and down season with the Yankees. At his best he can stiff baffle hitters but it does not happen as frequently or for as long as it used to.
That probably means the best approach for New York is to get a lead and let some quality bulpenning get them to a victory. Morton keeps the ball down so a slugfest does not seem likely.

Free Houston Astros vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
Things are definitely a lot more even on the mound in this one but is that enough to totally turn the momentum around. Definitely look for more scoring.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Over 8.5
I am expecting each team to get at least three runs in this one. I know that means there needs to be a little more work done but not every game is going to be 2-1.
