Houston Astros vs. New York Yankees

Astros: 2-1 (0-1 V)
Yankees: 1-2 (1-0 H)
When: 5:00 PM ET, Tuesday, October 17, 2017
Where: Yankee Stadium, Bronx, New York
TV: FS1

The New York Yankees escaped another tricky situation by avoiding to go three down in the American League Championship series and now will attempt to level the set against the Houston Astros with Game 4 set to be broadcasted on Tuesday afternoon on Fox Sports 1 at 5:08 p.m. ET and live from Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.

The Yankees famously came back from a 0-2 hole against the Cleveland Indians in the ALDS when they won three straight to eliminate the Indians but this time around they have had a little more breathing room being a best-of-seven series but going down by three games would have been a nightmarish outcome in trying to bounce back from such a large deficit.

Once again, it was Yankee starter CC Sabathia who bailed New York out in a crucial Game 3 in which the 37-year old threw six scoreless innings with just three hits allowed and five strikeouts in an 8-1 win over Houston on Monday. Todd Frazier and Aaron Judge both hit homeruns while combining for 6 RBI’s in the win.

RH Lance McCullers Jr. (7-4, 4.25 ERA - 0-0, 6.00 ERA) will make his first career postseason start as he takes the mound for the Astros while RH Sonny Gray (10-12, 3.55 ERA - 0-1, 8.10 ERA) will look for his 1st postseason victory as he gets the nod for the Yankees.

McCullers is a surprise choice to start a most crucial Game 4 as the 24-year old is 0-2 with a 8.23 ERA since the All-Star game and has been sidelined most of the time with a lower-back injury. McCullers allowed two runs on three hits with 2 walks and four strikeouts in three innings in his last trip to the mound in relief against Boston on October 8. The Florida native is 2-0 with 2.08 ERA in 3-career starts against the Yankees.

Gray has disappointed somewhat since being acquired by the Yankees in early August as he has posted a 4-7 record with a 3.72 ERA in 11 starts for the Yankees. His struggles escalated in his postseason start in which he allowed three runs on three hits and 4 walks in 3 1/3 innings in a 4-0 loss to Cleveland on October 5. The 27-year old from Nashville is 4-3 with a 3.09 ERA in 9-career starts against the Astros.

Mybookie Sportsbook has the Yankees favorites at 140-moneyline with the total sitting at 8½.

MLB Runline Odds at BetOnline the Yankees were favored by -1½ (+145)
