New York Yankees
The New York Yankees are rising a top of the American League as they have ran into another tough customer. The defending champions Houston Astros. However that did not scare New York away as the Yankees would defeat the champs in the first game of the series with a explosive in the ninth inning.
On the mound for the Yankees will be Masahiro Tanaka who cruised against the Angels in his last start, allowing a solo homer among two hits over six innings while striking out nine. He faced the Astros twice in the ALCS, taking a hard-luck loss in Game 1 and winning Game 5.
The Houston Astros are still a top of the American League West right now but their series against the New York Yankees could see them slipping a bit as the Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels are making ground. Can they turn it around before they head into Arizona?
On the mound for the Astros will be Lance McCullers Jr. who has allowed only two runs in his last three starts. In his last outing, a win over the A’s, McCullers threw seven shutout innings, allowing two hits while retiring his first 15 batters.
