Reason for Houston Astros vs New York Yankees

Houston Astros +115

Houston used another stellar outing from their co-ace to earn a road victory and take the 2-1 series advantage. The Astros now try to earn another victory and a commanding 3-1 advantage in the series. Houston got two hits from Jose Altuve (two runs, RBI) and Michael Brantley (run) in the victory.

Altuve (his fourth of the postseason) and Josh Reddick (his first) each went deep in the triumph. Gerrit Cole (3-0) continued his torrid run as he earned the win: he threw seven innings, allowing no runs on four hits with five walks and seven strikeouts. Roberto Osuna retired the side in the ninth for his first save.

Zack Greinke gets the ball for his third start of the postseason after logging 33 regular season starts split between Arizona and Houston. He finished the regular season 18-5 with a 2.93 ERA, a 0.982 WHIP, 30 walks and 187 strikeouts over 208.2 innings of work. Greinke took the loss in his last start, which came at home against the Yankees in Game 1 of the AL Championship Series on Saturday.

Astros are 1-4 in their last 5 League Championship road games. Astros are 1-5 in their last 6 League Championship games.

New York Yankees -125

The New York Yankees possess the most potent offense in baseball, but were limited to just two extra base hits in Game Three. New York did not get on the scoreboard until Gleyber Torres connected on an eighth inning solo shot. SP Luis Severino gave up two runs in four plus innings and took the loss for the Yankees, who trail this best-of-seven series 2-1.

New York manager Aaron Boone will give the nod to right-hander Masahiro Tanaka (11-9 4.45 ERA) on Thursday. The Yankees have won each of Tanaka’s two postseason starts and he has allowed just one run in 11 innings of work.

The New York Yankees ended the regular season ranked 14th in team ERA (4.31), 4th in strikeouts (1534), and 11th in BAA (.248). Yankees are 9-2 in their last 11 playoff home games, Yankees are 4-1 in their last 5 playoff games, Yankees are 4-1 in their last 5 overall.
