New York Yankees at Houston Astros MLB Matchup

The New York Yankees blitzed through their American League Division Series with such unmitigated vigor that their dismantling of the “Bomba Squad” Minnesota Twins came as a surprise relative to the amount of denigration dumped upon their pitching rotation this season.

Now the Yankees pitchers will turn their attention to the well-balanced lineup of the Houston Astros, beginning with Game 1 of the AL Championship Series on Saturday.

New York right-handers Masahiro Tanaka and Luis Severino combined with southpaw James Paxton to limit the power-laden Twins to just four runs on 12 hits and four walks with 19 strikeouts in 13 2/3 innings, setting the foundation for a three-game ALDS sweep.

Over the course of the 162-game regular season, the Yankees were lionized for their intimidating collection of sluggers and their overpowering bullpen arms. Their rotation, while not reviled, was far from celebrated.
