Astros strike early
HOUSTON (AP) Its a battle of the bullpens tonight as the Houston Astros try to beat the New York Yankees and win their second American League pennant in three years.
The Astros struck immediately as Yuli Gurriel (YOO-lee gur-ee-EHL) smacked a three-run homer with two out in the first inning. Jose Altuve (al-TOO-vay) laced a one-out double and Alex Bregman kept the inning alive with a two-out walk before Gurriel went deep off Green.
Houston still led, 3-0 heading into the second inning.
Managers AJ Hinch and Aaron Boone plan to go with their relievers for Game 6. Brad Peacock started for Houston against Chad Green. Both teams had their pitching rotations disrupted by Wednesdays rainout, causing the two clubs to play four straight games.
New York sent the series back to Houston with last nights 4-1 game, a game in which neither team scored after the first inning. The Astros had won three straight since dropping the series opener, 7-0.
Game 7 would be tomorrow in Houston if necessary. Houston will start a fully-rested Gerrit Cole, who is 19-0 in 25 starts since a loss to the White Sox back on May 22. The Yankees will counter with Luis Severino, who was the losing pitcher against Cole and the Astros in Game 3.
