Houston sends Keuchel to hill in ALCS Game 1 vs. Yankees

The Houston Astros are playing in this year's ALCS game with the New York Yankees on Friday in Houston. But he was quick to point out that Keuchel's success certainly hasn't been limited to games against NY.

This was all part of a master plan for the Astros, mixing the young players they got when things weren't going well, with veterans like Carlos Beltran, Brian McCann, Reddick, and the ultimate in "go-for-it" gets, Justin Verlander.

"Now we are just hours away from the Astros and another big challenge". Correa hit.500 against the Yankees with two home runs and 10 RBIs in seven regular-season games this season. Keuchel's 1.41 ERA against the Yankees ranks first among active pitchers who have made at least five starts against them.

"I know there's a confidence level", Hinch said. On the other hand, Aaron Judge struck out in 16 of his 20 at-bats versus the Indians. The Yankees' last ALCS appearance was in 2012.

"I woke up this morning and I was like, 'Oh, Dallas pitching tonight, this is great, '" Altuve said Friday in a press conference. "I don't think who the names are or who the jersey is, he knows he can get anybody out in the league". For the postseason, Yankees relievers have posted a 2.20 ERA while striking out 42 batters in 28 2/3 innings and limiting opposing hitters to a.153 batting average and a.474 OPS. So one way of guaranteeing him one start at home is one and five. "I was so excited and I was like, 'OK, here we go.' It's not a secret that we had a good team before him, before trading for him, but after we did that it's like, 'OK, now we go, now we got everything we need.' And I was really happy we got him".

The software fix prevents the activation of the speaker with a touch, which was a feature meant to offer options for activation. After being notified of the bug and asked for comment, Google dispatched engineers to collect the device and conduct tests.

Houston is the overwhelming favorite to win this series due to the strong pitching the Astros have and a strong hitting lineup led by MVP favorite Jose Altuve. "But I think it's just a coincidence that my command and location have been better than what it usually is against them".

The 25-year-old Judge isn't daunted by his hard postseason. It's not a stretch to imagine this series being decided by what happens when the Yankees' powerful bullpen goes to work against the most relentless offense in the game.

Houston's ace is coming into the series 22 strikeouts in his last 17.2 innings spread over his last two regular-season starts and Game 2 of the ALDS against Boston.

Much of the reason that NY was able to let go of McCann was another young slugger, 24-year-old catcher Gary Sanchez (33 homers this season, 53 in 177 career games). Houston's hasn't announced its rotation past Saturday.
