Houston finds themselves in a series again after losing game 4 on the road. They still have home field in the series but a game 5 loss would have to make them sweat.
The Astros bullpen just couldn’t hold the lead in G4. Lance McCullers pitched well but after he left the game things unraveled. They only had one big hit in the in the game.
Dallas Keuchel was dominant in the series opener and they need him to be strong again to right the ship after a couple of losses.
New York Yankees
The Yankees continue to surprise, evening the series at home. Aaron Judge hit another homer and Sonny Gray and the bullpen kept it close so they could win it late.
Tanaka did not pitch poorly in his lone start in the series he just wasn’t as dominant as Keuchel. Even though he doesn’t always look it he is capable of those kinds of performances.
The question is whether the Yankees can solve the Houston lefty. They have to have good productive at bats and some homers wouldn’t hurt.

Free Houston Astros vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
It is never good to have back to back losses in the playoffs but if you are only as good as that day’s starter you have to like Houston’s chances of turning it around.

Hopefully the back to back losses have made the price on the Astros ore valuable. Keuchel may not repeat game one other than the overall result.
