The New York Yankees will attempt to bounce back from a heartbreaking loss as they conclude their three-game series against the Houston Astros in an AL showdown set to be staged Sunday afternoon at Minute Maid Park in Houston. New York had a great opportunity to win the series on Saturday but a late blown lead will force the Bronx Bombers to wait until Sunday to crown a winner in the rubber match.

After exploding for 13 runs on 14 hits to take the opener on Friday, the Yankees’ lumber suddenly fell silent in the first five frames with just a couple of hits and no runs to their dossier. Then top Yankee prospect Clint Frazier, who was promoted to the big club on Saturday, started the 6th with his first career hit which ignited a five-run inning culminated by Didi Gregorius’ grand slam to give the Yanks a 5-2 lead.

Houston’s Carlos Correa cut the lead to two runs in the bottom of the frame before Frazier was at it again connecting for his first homerun in the top of the 7th to consolidate New York’s lead. It was all for naught as the Astros scored four runs in the bottom of the 8th inning to stun the Yankees while tying the series. New York dropped to two games behind the Boston Red Sox in the AL East while the Astros are running away in the AL West with the Angels, Mariners and Rangers all panting behind.

RH Luis Severino (5-3, 3.15 ERA) will take his turn in the finale for the Yankees while RH Mike Fiers (5-3, 3.98 ERA) looks to rebound from a recent as he gets the nod for the Astros.

Severino bounced back in his latest outing after two subpar performances in which he allowed a combined nine runs on 12 hits in twelve innings along with a loss. The 23-year old limited the White Sox to a run on six hits with a career-high 12 strikeouts in 7 frames in a 4-3 win over Chicago last Thursday. Severino lasted only 2 1/3 innings while allowing 3 runs on six hits and 3 walks on 77 pitches in a no-decision against Houston back on May 14. It was the Dominican’s lone career start against the Astros.

Before his last trip to the mound, Fiers was cruising nicely with four quality starts and three wins in his last five outings before stumbling against Oakland last Thursday. The 32-year old allowed four runs on four hits in 5 2/3 innings in the 6-4 loss to the A’s. Fiers was part of a no-decision against the Yankees on May 14 in a game in which he yielded 4 runs in 5 2/3 innings. The Florida native is 0-0 with a 7.59 ERA in 2-career starts versus New York.
