Keuchel looks to continue success against Yankees in ALCS

It didn't matter on Thursday, though.

It's a great time to be the Houston Astros, who topped the Boston Red Sox in the ALDS and are fully rested and ready to go against a New York Yankees team that is depleted after coming back from a 2-0 deficit against the Cleveland Indians. The victor of that first game will get a leg up on reaching the World Series, which neither team has played in for quite some time.

"I've been asked that question like 10 times already", a slightly exasperated Keuchel said.

"It is a little insane", said McCann, the 33-year-old catcher who was traded by the Yankees to Houston last winter.

Game 4, at New York, Tuesday, Time TBD.

"To be honest with you, when Dallas is right, he's confident against anybody".

"I just couldn't get out of my head: 'I didn't think I'd be here".

Over 63 1/3 innings, McHugh owns a 3.55 ERA and 1.29 on the year. His biggest win to date against them came in the 2015 AL wild-card game when he and the then-upstart Astros got a 3-0 win in the Bronx.

"For that win in the wild-card game, it wasn't just special for me and the validation, it was special for everybody to go into NY and play that well", he said.

"I can recall Masahiro Tanaka saying through his interpreter after Game 3, 'We are going to win Game 4 then go back to Cleveland and take care of business.' It showed vast confidence even though they were down 1-2".

"They've got high-end velocity", Hinch said. Francona utilized Bauer as a reliever in a possible clinching Game 4.

"Keuchel and Verlander are going to go one and two in that order", Hinch told reporters. "I was the guy who provided that little bit of information for (Gregorius on adjustments)".

Masahiro Tanaka will start game one for the Yankees on Friday. "So I have all the confidence in the world".

Much of the reason that NY was able to let go of McCann was another young slugger, 24-year-old catcher Gary Sanchez (33 homers this season, 53 in 177 career games). He's 2-0 with a 3.12 ERA in the postseason.

Davis posted a 1-3 mark with an 8.63 ERA in six starts and one relief appearance this season. He allowed just three hits in seven scoreless innings in his second career postseason game.

"Extremely talented offensively", Girardi said of the Astros. With that in mind, he knew one of those two starters could be available if needed in relief in Game 4.

These pitchers will face two of the best hitters in the majors in Houston's Jose Altuve and NY rookie Aaron Judge. Keuchel isn't buying the suggestion that the bloom is wilting from Judge, who set a major-league rookie record with 52 home runs.

Altuve has kept up his blistering pace in the postseason, where he's hitting.533 with three homers and four RBIs. Aaron Judge has slumped in the playoffs, going 1-for-20 with 16 strikeouts in the ALDS. It will be a challenge for the 25-year-old MVP co-favorite to rediscover his swing in such a short amount of time. "They're aggressive on the base paths, so you have to control that". "So just keep playing my game, keep having fun. just contribute any way I can".

Francona named Bauer his Game 1 starter, followed by the likely Cy Young victor Kluber for Game 2.

The Washington Nationals announced left-hander Gio Gonzalez as their starter for Thursday's winner-take-all Game 5 of the National League Division Series against the visiting Chicago Cubs.
