Yankees stay alive with 4-1 win against Astros

He was awarded the win in Game 4 after striking out consecutive batters to leave the bases loaded in the fifth inning. That turned out not to be the case, as Houston pitching held the fort throughout the series, including a Game 6 that saw Houston outpitching and out-maneuvering the Yankees en route to the series victory.

"And I said, 'Yeah, let's go".

As for NY, it sounds like either Chad Green or J.A. Happ could be the first one out of the bullpen.

With out and runners at first and second in the sixth inning, Brett Gardner hit a sinking liner to right that Josh Reddick caught just before it hit the grass, a ball that easily could have skipped by him for an extra-base hit and one or two Yankee runs. Aaron Hicks went 1-for-3 with a first inning three-run homer.

Entering to start the Astros ninth with the game tied 4-4, Chapman struck out two in a row before walking George Springer and serving up a pennant-winning homer to Altuve, who rocketed a blast to left.

James Paxton answers the bell against the Astros with nine strikeouts over six innings of one-run baseball in Game 5 of the ALCS. Gleyber Torres finished 1-for-3 with a double and a run scored. Stanton was 2 for 4 with a homer in Game 1 against the Astros. He allowed a pair of first-inning homers for the first time in 28 postseason starts and gave up four runs in an inning for the first time since Houston acquired him from Detroit in August 2017.

Despite another shaky first inning in which he misplayed a comebacker into a single, issued a walk and allowed a run to score on a wild pitch, Paxton recovered and had a terrific outing that allowed the Yankees to avoid elimination.

Houston lost by a score of 4-1 Friday night at NY in Game 5 of the ALCS. After a short visit to the mound, Gurriel knocked the next pitch into the seats in left field for a 3-0 lead.

The Astros said Pressly exited with right knee discomfort. Instead, the postseason star - undefeated since May 22 - can be lined up for Game 1 at home against the NL champion Washington Nationals on Tuesday night.

His breakout season now includes a standout postseason game, as Urshela was 3-for-3 with a walk, solo homer and two singles.

It was only fitting that LeMahieu delivered when it counted most, after doing it all season, leading the majors in hitting with runners in scoring position at.389 while leaving no doubt he was the Yankees' MVP.

The Yankees are 4-11 in their last 15 playoff road games. But as we head to Houston, it feels like this series suddenly deserves a Game 7.
