New York Yankees vs. Houston Astros

Yankees: 0-1 (0-1 V)
Astros: 1-0 (1-0 H)

Where: Minute Maid Park, Houston, Texas
TV: FOX

The Houston Astros took a positive step towards reaching their first World Series since 2005 when they prevailed in Game 1 of the ALCS and will attempt to keep that winning form as they get ready to resume the series against the New York Yankees with Game 2 set to be broadcasted Saturday afternoon on Fox at 4:08 p.m. ET and live from Minute Maid Stadium in Houston.

The Astros along with seven others clubs have never won the World Series but Houston’s quest to finally reach the ultimate goal could be this season as they have proven to have the right stuff. They strolled through the ALDS by winning 3-1 against the Boston Red Sox and now have won a nail-biter 2-1 against New York in the ALCS opener on Friday.

They led the league in runs scored this season and their pitching isn’t too shabby either with starter Dallas Keuchel proving that very point in Friday’s win. The lefty neutralized the Yankees with zero runs on just four hits and 10 strikeouts in 7 innings for his second win of the postseason. And now comes Justin Verlander in Saturday’s contest. The veteran has been lights out since being acquired from the Tigers in September.

RH Luis Severino (14-6, 2.98 ERA – 1-0, 7.36 ERA) will look for back-to-back wins as he gets the call in Game 2 for the Yankees while RH Justin Verlander (15-8, 3.36 ERA – 2-0, 3.12 ERA) will attempt to notch his tenth-postseason career victory as he takes the mound for the Astros.

Severino rebounded from a disastrous performance in the wild-card game against Minnesota when he won his first career postseason start against Cleveland in Game 4 of the ALDS last Monday. The 23-year old allowed three runs on 4 hits and two homeruns and 9 strikeouts in seven innings in a 7-3 Yankees’ win which evened the series at two games apiece. The Dominican is 0-1 with a lofty 10.57 ERA in two-career starts against the Astros.

Verlander has been sharp since being acquired by the Astros as the 34-year old has won all his 5 starts in the regular season while sporting an incredible 1.06 ERA during that stretch. Verlander also won Game 1 against Boston on October 5 and notched another victory in relief in the decisive Game 5 back on Monday. He is 9-5 with a 3.28 ERA in 17-career postseason starts. In all, the Virginia native is 6-7 with a 3.87 ERA in 18-career starts against the Yankees.

Mybookie Sportsbook has the Astros favorites at 140-moneyline with the total sitting at 7½.
