Yankees, Astros Game 1 ALCS lineups | Joe Girardi makes big change

Not even 48 hours after the New York Yankees completed their American League Division Series comeback against the Cleveland Indians, they'll be on the field to take on the Houston Astros in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series.

This is somewhat surprising as McHugh was left off the team's ALDS roster.

"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. Verlander, who was acquired on August 31, made his first career relief appearance to help eliminate the Red Sox in Game 4 on Monday.

Now in possession of a 1-0 series lead, the Astros will attempt to double their advantage Friday when they hand the ball over to 2015 Cy Young Award victor Dallas Keuchel.


"Keuchel and Verlander are going to go one and two in that order", Hinch told reporters.

"They've got high-end velocity", Hinch said. The Astros bullpen is good, but not spectacular, so you might likewise see starters in relief depending on the situation, just as we saw Verlander pitch in relief against Boston on Monday. "So I have all the confidence in the world".

On May 11, he limited the Yankees to five hits, one walk and one unearned run with nine strikeouts over six innings in a 3-2 victory. "We hand him the ball and the entire room knows we have a chance to win".

"His stuff was great the other day, he's had some really big starts, his last two starts have been outstanding", manager Joe Girardi said. 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.


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

Thanks in part to Altuve, the Astros wielded Major League Baseball's most prolific offense during the regular season.

Altuve has kept up his blistering pace in the postseason, where he's hitting.533 with three homers and four RBIs. "I love being able to represent them and I try and play, I play hard everyday all the people that have helped me in New Mexico to get to this point", said Houston third baseman Alex Bregman. It will be a challenge for the 25-year-old MVP co-favorite to rediscover his swing in such a short amount of time. "So just keep playing my game, keep having fun. just contribute any way I can". He's been picked up, however, by ALDS Game 5 hero Didi Gregorius as well as Aaron Hicks and Greg Bird. But New York showed itself as a force to be reckoned with by rallying from two games down to oust the Indians. Houston's hasn't announced its rotation past Saturday.
