New York Yankees
The Yankees lost the first two games of the 2017 ALCS at Minute Maid Park by 2–1 scores; Houston’s broadcaster made sure to remind everyone of that last night after the Astros’ 2–1 win.
Sonny Gray pitched well, as good as he’s pitched all season, but he was the tough-luck loser. The Yankees didn’t score until the eighth and threatened for more than just one, but Chris Devenski struck out Didi Gregorious in a big spot. It has seemed like Didi has won all of those battles so far this season.
Boston won to set its best April record in franchise history and picked up another game on New York for the first time in a while. The Yankees’ 9-game winning streak is over.
Jordan Montgomery didn’t pitch in the postseason at all for the Yankees last season. I like this kid a lot.
Charlie Morton pitched his team to yet another win against the Yankees. He won Game 7 last season with a superb outing and he was just as good in a lower leverage spot on Monday, getting two outs in the eighth inning before the bullpen allowed one of his inherited runners to score. He struck out 10.
Justin Verlander has come out with a playoff mentality in April. He’s dominated but I’m worried about his sustainability. He still throws awfully hard for a man his age and I’m skeptical about him staying healthy.
Until something happens, though, he’s a good bet to win just about every game he starts.

Free New York Yankees vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction: Monty stays with Verlander.
Montgomery doesn’t have to go seven or eight. Five good inning will do.
