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

Los Angeles Dodgers celebrating a win

It was a hole they fell into with a gut-wrenching Game 2 loss after manager Joe Girardi failed to challenge a play that opened the door for a stunning Cleveland rally.

Also, they will exact some revenge on Keuchel, who shut them out for six innings and outdueled Tanaka in the 2015 wild-card game at Yankee Stadium. And when they meet in the American League Championship Series, beginning Friday night at Minute Maid Park, it may be the most extreme collision of power versus power the sport has ever seen.

In that series, Tanaka pitched for NY in Game 3 allowing 3 hits, while striking out 7 and walking 1 in New York's 1-0 win.

Luis Severino will be New York's starter for Game 2 on Saturday, while on Monday in New York CC Sabathia will get the nod for the Yankees followed by Sonny Gray taking the mound in Game 4.

Houston hasn't made that many decisions yet, but it has chosen Justin Verlander to pitch in Game 2 at home against Severino.

By virtue of his home run hat trick, Altuve became the ninth player in MLB history to smack a trio of jacks in a postseason game, according to MLB.com's Brian McTaggart. The Yankees' full lineup looks like this: Brett Gardner LF, Aaron Judge RF, Gary Sanchez C, Didi Gregorius SS, Starlin Castro 2B, Aaron Hicks CF, Greg Bird 1B, Holliday, Todd Frazier 3B.

Right-hander Collin McHugh has been added to the Houston Astros roster for the AL Championship Series against the New York Yankees. Jeff says this is a longer series than the five-game ALDS. The Astros have homefield advantage against the Yankees. "Then after that is where it gets a little thought-provoking, I guess".

"They've got high-end velocity", Hinch said.

The Yankees will need that resolve again with the Astros perhaps even a tougher opponent than the Indians.

Justices end 4th Circuit travel-ban challenge
