One of my favorite sports quotes is from Mike Tyson. “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” The Astros punched the Yankees in Games 1&2, but they haven’t been to answer the counterpunches since then.

Tonight it was the Yankees slaying the beast that is Dallas Keuchel. Keuchel has always been a great pitcher, but he seemed to be even better against the Yankees in the playoffs. He shut them down in the 2015 wild card game and did the same in game 1 of the ALCS. But he didn’t do it tonight and the Yankees will head to Houston with a 3-2 lead.

I think I am correct when I say that the last time the Yankees won a Game 6 or 7 on the road was the 1978 World Series. Verlander is going to be very tough and the Astros should get a energy jolt from their crowd. See you Friday night.
