Jose Altuve's 3-HR Game Gives Astros 1-0 2017 ALDS Lead vs. Red Sox

Dallas Keuchel will start Game 1 of the ALCS Friday night, and Altuve couldn't have been more pleased. The Yankees manager added that Tanaka can get on a roll and put together a run of strong starts and the team will need one of them on Friday. "And just because it's the Yankees, you get a little bit more amped and jittery".

But Keuchel has pitched better than most against the Yankees in recent years, going 4-2 with a 1.41 ERA and 45 strikeouts in six regular-season starts.

These pitchers will face two of the best hitters in the majors in Houston's Jose Altuve and NY rookie Aaron Judge.

With all of the attention on Altuve, Carlos Correa and George Springer, look for someone like Marwin Gonzalez to step up in the ALCS for the Astros. "And then he was, 'Yes, we did.'

But if the Astros have never faced a bullpen such as the Yankees' - simply because one this deep and talented has never existed before this season, and these teams last met in early July - it is also true the Yankees' relievers have never faced a lineup quite like the Astros'.

The Astros are going with 12 pitchers and 13 position players for the best-of-seven series that starts Friday at Minute Maid Park. Sabathia, Luis Severino and Tanaka combined to give up seven runs in 23 ²/₃ innings before handing the ball over to a bullpen that dominated the final three games of the series.

By the time his day was over, Sale had allowed six earned runs and nine hits, including six of the extra-base variety, while striking out six over five innings.

McCann said facing the Yankees in his first ALCS doesn't make the experience any more special than it already is.

The prediction: After coming all the way back to vanquish the 102-win Indians on Wednesday night, the Yankees were flying so high that they barely needed a jet to get to Houston.
