Girardi calls Tanaka 'special' after game five masterpiece

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 04:27:53 GMT

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi lauded the "special" Masahiro Tanaka after the pitcher led his team to victory over the Houston Astros. Tanaka spun seven shut-out innings with eight strikeouts in the Yankees' 5-0 game five win on Wednesday. Tanaka's gem gave the Yankees a 3-2 American League Championship Series lead after losing the first two games.

Did the Astros blow ALCS Game 4 by pulling Lance McCullers Jr.?

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 02:59:25 GMT

For six innings, Lance McCullers Jr. defied expectations. The Houston Astros opted for McCullers to start Game 4 of the American League Championship Series, almost a pick-em situation between the good-but-not-amazing back-end of their starting rotation. If the eighth inning hadn’t have happened — if the Yankees didn’t stage an unreal comeback, win Game 4 by the score of 6-4 and even the ALCS at two on Tuesday night — the baseball world would be gushing about McCullers and his fantastic performance.

Aaron Judge's bat awakens during Yankees comeback win in Game 4

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 01:58:07 GMT

If the Houston Astros blow the American League Championship Series, we’ll be able to pinpoint the exact moment the series flipped. The Yankees managed to pull off an incredible late-inning comeback, winning Game 4 6-4 and tying up the series at 2-2. Coming into Tuesday’s game, Judge had a .147 batting average in nine postseason games.

Yankee Stadium Conjures its Old Spirit in Yankees' Raucous Game 4 Win Over Astros

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 11:52:42 GMT

The old man, gone nine years now, would be proud. This was the night the Yankees awoke what the wrecking ball had stilled. Yankee Stadium the younger, cursed from birth by dining clubs, a concrete moat with seats pushed too far from what people pay to see, at last overcame its deficiencies and became a bona fide player Tuesday night in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series.

Keep track of the MLB postseason, one game at a time

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 04:27:41 GMT

The 2017 MLB playoffs are here, with 10 teams providing us several storylines to watch this October, from the wild card games all the way through the World Series. We had three 100-win teams — the Los Angeles Dodgers, Cleveland Indians, and Houston Astros — for just the sixth time in major league history and the first time since 2003. There were a trio of great turnaround stories as well. The Minnesota Twins had the worst record in baseball in 2016 with 103 losses, but this year they’re in the postseason as the second American League Wild Card, the first team ever to make the playoffs one year after losing 100 games. In the National League, the Arizona Diamondbacks rebounded from a 93-loss campaign

Aaron Judge demolished a baseball for his second home run this ALCS

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 23:57:27 GMT

Aaron Judge, who had already hit one home run in the ALCS in the form of a lead-extending, three-run shot in Game 3, absolutely destroyed a young and innocent baseball in Game 4. He took an 85 mph curveball and said GOODBYE BASEBALL, SEE YOU NEVER. This home run was a little more anticlimactic in this moment compared to Monday’s mash, as it only cut the Yankees’ deficit from four runs to three, but it was still a towering, awesome dinger. No matter how many times he’s destroyed a pitch like this, it doesn’t get old to watch. Just look at how far this goes and the velocity with which it gets there. It’s one of the most certain “wow” moments baseball has right now — just watching this very tall,

MLB: Yankees level Astros series, Dodgers take 3-0 lead

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 04:42:39 GMT

The New York Yankees pulled back to 2-2 in their series against the Houston Astros, while the Los Angeles Dodgers moved further clear of the Chicago Cubs. Houston's Lance McCullers Jr. and New York's Sonny Gray did everything their teams could have asked of them, but they did not get any help in the Yankees' 6-4 win over the Astros in game four of the American League Championship Series (ALCS).

Judge, Sabathia help Yankees beat Astros 8-1, trail ALCS 2-1

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 11:25:41 GMT

Back in the Bronx, the big guys delivered. Greeted by an array of "All Rise" signs in a ballpark that fits their style, Aaron Judge hit a three-run homer and made a pair of sparkling catches, leading CC Sabathia and the New York Yankees over the Houston Astros 8-1 Monday night and cutting their deficit to 2-1 in the AL Championship Series. Todd Frazier hit a go-ahead, three-run homer into the short porch in right field in the second inning against Charlie Morton.

Dodgers close in on World Series with 6-1 win over Cubs

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 11:28:02 GMT

The Los Angeles Dodgers have a tough lineup, a talented pitching staff and a manager making all the right moves. Yu Darvish pitched sparkling ball into the seventh inning, Chris Taylor homered again and the Dodgers beat the Chicago Cubs 6-1 on Tuesday night to open a 3-0 lead in the NL Championship Series. Andre Ethier also went deep and Taylor added an RBI triple in the fifth as Los Angeles improved to 6-0 in this postseason, setting a franchise record for consecutive playoff wins.

How to Watch Astros vs. Yankees: ALCS Game 4 Time, Live Stream, TV Channel

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 15:13:29 GMT

After losing Game 3 in the Bronx, the Houston Astros will look to take a commanding 3-1 series lead over the New York Yankees in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series on Tuesday. New York has not lost at Yankee Stadium this postseason and will look to build off a breakout offensive performance on Monday, when they racked up seven hits and eight runs in an 8-1 victory over Houston. The Yankees pitching staff has only allowed five runs to the Astros through three games and will need to starting pitcher Sonny Gray to continue the trend on Tuesday.

ALCS Game 5: What the heck happened to the Astros offense?

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 02:16:46 GMT

In the four games of their first-round playoff series, the Houston Astros got RBIs from nine different hitters. In five games of their American League Championship Series against the New York Yankees, the Astros have scored exactly nine runs. Going into Game 5, only three Astros players had driven in runs — and it stayed that way Wednesday, as the Astros were shut out 5-0, falling behind 3-2 in the series.

The kid who nearly caught the Astros homer had an angel in the outfield: His brother

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 18:41:21 GMT

When young Houston Astros fan Carson Riley reached down from his seat in right field of Minute Maid Park and tried to catch a Carlos Correa homer in his glove during Game 2 of the American League Championship Series, people were quick to make Jeffrey Maier comparisons. The Houston Chronicle’s Matt Young published a riveting tale Tuesday that digs deeper into Riley’s story including why his family was at Saturday’s ALCS Game 2 and how the experience has profoundly affected Carson’s parents. The big reveal is this: Carson’s older brother, Cade, died a month ago in an ATV accident near the family’s home in Liberty Hill, which is about three hours from Houston.

Cut down by Yanks, Astros turn to Keuchel in ALCS Game 5

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 02:29:03 GMT

The Houston Astros heated up their bullpen in a hurry, but it didn't make any difference. No matter who manager A.J. Hinch signaled for, the New York Yankees would not be stopped. Somehow, the Astros squandered a late four-run lead and fell 6-4 Tuesday, and now find themselves tied at two games apiece in the AL Championship Series.

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 21:03:13 GMT

Austin Romine will catch right-hander Sonny Gray for the New York Yankees against Houston in Game 4 of the AL Championship Series on Tuesday, with regular backstop Gary Sanchez moving to designated hitter.

ALCS Game 4: Yankees score six unanswered runs to even series vs. Astros

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 00:52:24 GMT

Lulled into a stupor by six feckless innings from the New York Yankees’ offense, the sight of a 427-foot moonshot by Aaron Judge soaring into the night roused it from the slumber. Over the next hour, as the Baby Bombers completed a comeback that evened the American League Championship Series, the 48,804 in attendance turned this place into a tinderbox. The Bronx hasn’t sounded like this since the last Yankees dynasty.

ALCS Game 4: Yankees playing like it's 1999

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 05:12:40 GMT

Tonight, tomorrow, days and weeks and years from now, the 48,804 people who filled Yankee Stadium on Tuesday evening are going to try to describe the atmosphere here for Game 4 of the American League Championship Series.

Yankees even ALCS with comeback win over Astros in Game 4

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 00:58:57 GMT

After a shocking comeback win in Game 4 of the ALCS, the Yankees have still not lost at home in this postseason. It was their key to beating the Indians in the ALDS, and it may very well be the key to them beating the Astros and going to the World Series, if that ends up happening. For most of the game, both teams were locked in a scoreless tie thanks to solid pitching by starters Lance McCullers and Sonny Gray. The former pitched six innings, letting up two hits and a run, and striking out three with only two walks. The only run he allowed was Aaron Judge’s monster home run shot. The latter had an outing that was a tad shorter, going five innings and letting up one hit and two runs. He struck

Yankees vs. Astros Is Now All About Aaron Judge, Whether He Likes It Or Not

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 10:58:40 GMT

One of many strange things about watching sport on television, one whose significance becomes apparent only when you pause to think, is the soundlessness of it all. It was like that on Monday night, at the bottom of the fourth inning at Yankee Stadium, when Aaron Judge faced a 2-2 pitch from the Astros’ Will Harris and sent it hurtling into the crowd. On television, on replays, you can see the crowd jumping better than you can hear them screaming, though the roar of the collective was tremendous.

Judge HR sparks NY, Yanks beat Astros 6-4 to even ALCS at 2

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 03:17:31 GMT

With a soaring shot headed for Monument Park, Aaron Judge got New York back on course for another memorable October. Judge ignited a comeback with a home run , then hit a tying double during a four-run eighth inning to spur the unflappable Yankees over the Houston Astros 6-4 Tuesday night and tie the AL Championship Series 2-2. The Baby Bombers trailed 4-0 against starter Lance McCullers Jr. until Judge homered leading off the seventh.

NLCS Game 3: Dodgers one win away from first World Series in 29 years

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 04:41:22 GMT

The Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night drew to within one win of deposing the defending champion Chicago Cubs and returning to the World Series after 29 years. Yu Darvish, the mid-season trade acquisition, pitched into the seventh inning at Wrigley Field, Chris Taylor and Andre Ethier homered, and the Dodgers beat the Cubs, 6-1, to take a three-games-to-none lead in the best-of seven National League Championship Series.

MLB Playoffs: Yankees storm back for win over Astros to even ALCS

Three Thoughts on Yankees' Astro-Nomical ALCS Game 4 Comeback

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 01:26:35 GMT

After a wild Game 4, and a blown four-run lead, the Yankees and Astros are tied 2-2 in the ALCS. AN ASTRO-NOMICAL MELTDOWN! I figured, during the sixth inning, that the story of Tuesday night’s game would be how one team’s bullpen engineered a loss.
