Houston takes the 2-1 series lead after their 4-1 road win in Game 3 on Monday. Astros got seven strong innings from starter Gerrit Cole who worked seven scoreless innings. Astros bullpen in two innings gave up a home run and nothing else. Luis Severino the Yankees starter lasted 4 1/3rd innings allowing two runs all homers. Both teams had chances for big innings, but Houston left ten runners on base and the Yankees 9.

Zack Greinke has been roughed up in the playoffs this season. In the ALCS he faced Tampa Bay on the road giving up six runs with three homers over 3 2/3rd innings. He faced the Yankees in the opener of the ALCS at home and allowed three runs with two homers in six innings. This year New York has hit four homers on Zack Greinke in 12 innings the righthander has pitched against the Yankees. Masahiro Tanaka faced the Twins in the ALDS for New York and the veteran pitched five innings allowing three hits. Tanaka was the Yankees starter in the opener of this series, and he held the Astros to no runs with only one hit over six innings. He has pitched well the past two seasons against Houston. Game 4 was originally scheduled for Wednesday, but rain cancelled the game. The travel day is gone so that means if this series goes seven there will be a game everyday for the next four days.
