New York Yankees vs Houston Astros prediction
After an unlucky outing where the Yankees made hard contact off Cole ( 9 men left on base and a 3-run homer missed by inches ), i believe the Yankees will react today and here is why.
Exact same matchup as game 1 where i cashed in on Tanaka.
Indeed, he owned them ( again ) and seems like the Astros have all kind of troubles with his slider as het got a lot of GBs with it: 60.9 GB% already this postseason with a 0.82 ERA, 9.00 K/9 and some excellent control: 1.64 BB/9.
In the regular season he posted also a solid 2.25 ERA against the Stros in 12 innings pitched.
On the other side Greinke who is 0-2 this postseason with a 8.38 ERA and the crazy thing? He pitched barely better than that with a sky high 8.28 FIP (!), which is mainly because of that crazy 4.66 HR/9 ( 2 of them against the Yankees ).
Crucial game for the Yankees and i believe they will get it done today.
