In a rematch of last season’s American League Championship Series, the Yankees and Astros squared off Monday night in Houston to open a four-game series. This matchup certainly had a postseason vibe to it, featuring a tight pitcher’s duel between Sonny Gray and Charlie Morton.
Although the Yankees got the short end of the stick in their latest bout against the ‘Stros, Gray bounced back against one of the best lineups in baseball. The righty turned in six strong innings allowing only two runs to cross the plate. Offensively, Brett Gardner was responsible for the lone Yankee run, delivering an RBI single that scored Gleyber Torres.
