Houston Has No Problem With The Yankees

The Houston Astros have won the AL Wild Card game defeating the New York Yankees 3-0 at Yankee Stadium. 

I didn’t think Dallas Keuchel would do much on three days rest against Masahiro Tanaka, but Keuchel went six scoreless innings combining with Tony Sipp, Will Harris and Luke Gregerson on a three-hit shutout. The only chance the Yankees had was in the sixth when A-Rod was up with runners on first and second with two out, but he flied out to center to end the inning. As it turned out, Houston had no problem.

The Astros got their runs on two solo home runs off Tanaka by Colby Rasmus in the 2nd and Carlos Gomez in the 4th. They would add a run in the seventh on a Jose Altuve single off Dellin Betances. 

Houston advances to the ALDS against the Kansas City Royals starting Thursday night in K.C. I think the Astros can take the Royals.

If the Astros somehow win the AL pennant they will become the first team in MLB history to represent both leagues in the World Series. They won the NL pennant in 2005 which was their last post-season appearance until now.

The NL Wild Card takes place tomorrow night between the Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates. It is the Cubs’ first post-season appearance since 2008 while the Pirates are hosting their third consecutive NL Wild Card game. They beat the Cincinnati Reds in 2013, but lost to the San Francisco Giants last year. The winner of tomorrow’s game will face the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLDS beginning Friday.
