Yankees Set Rotation For ALCS, Masahiro Tanaka Gets Game 1
14 October, 2017, 01:10 | Author: Keith Rowe
In seven career starts against the Yankees, regular and postseason combined, he is 5-2 with a 1.24 ERA and 52 strikeouts against only seven walks in 50 2/3 innings, a stretch that includes six shutout innings against them in the 2015 A.L. wild card game, which the Astros won.
Thanks in part to Altuve, the Astros wielded Major League Baseball's most prolific offense during the regular season.
"I've been asked that question like 10 times already", a slightly exasperated Keuchel said.
It's a grind for any team, but by the time they arrived in Houston, the ALDS was behind the Yankees.
Gray has thrown just 3 1/3 innings for the Yankees since September 28 so he threw a simulated game on Thursday at Houston Minute Maid Park. But he was quick to point out that Keuchel's success certainly hasn't been limited to games against NY.
"I have a ton of confidence in him", Girardi said of Tanaka.
In Game 5, the Yankees again did something that might have seemed impossible at an earlier point in the game's evolution: Their hitters struck out 16 times in a 5-2 win - making them the first team in history to win a nine-inning postseason game in which they whiffed that many times. It was a hole they fell into with a gut-wrenching Game 2 loss after manager Joe Girardi failed to challenge a play that opened the door for a stunning Cleveland rally.
But Tanaka didn't survive the second inning May 14 against the Astros, who just got through knocking around Red Sox starting pitching for 16 runs in 11⅔ innings over four games.
Keuchel gets the nod in the opener after pitching behind Justin Verlander in the ALDS.
"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)". The Astros and the Yankees have played each other in seven games in the regular season. He's 2-0 with a 3.12 ERA in the postseason. So one way of guaranteeing him one start at home is one and five. "We hand him the ball and the entire room knows we have a chance to win".
Keuchel v. The Yanks: Dallas Keuchel starts Game 1. 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.
Altuve has kept up his blistering pace in the postseason, where he's hitting.533 with three homers and four RBIs. 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". Houston's hasn't announced its rotation past Saturday.
