Houston Astros at New York Yankees MLB Matchup

The New York Yankees know that if they are going to beat the Astros in the American League Championship Series, they likely will have to face Houston aces Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole again.

First, the Yankees must ensure there actually will be a return trip to Houston.

Weather permitting, the Yankees will attempt to even the ALCS at two games apiece Wednesday night when they host the Astros in Game 4.

The Yankees trail the series after scoring a combined three runs in Games 2 and 3. After getting two runs in 6 2/3 innings against Verlander on Sunday, the Yankees were blanked for seven innings by Cole on Tuesday en route to a 4-1 defeat.

“That’s nothing,” right-hander Luis Severino said of New York’s deficit. “We have a great team. We can come back. Hopefully, we play (Wednesday) and get it back.”
