ALCS - Yankees vs Astros

Fri Oct 11, 2019 1:08 pm

a championship rematch from 2017 ... in their past matchup, the home team won every game as the Astros went on to a WS Championship over the Dodgers

I think this might be a repeat

In a heavyweight ALCS, Yankees come out swinging and the Astros are left flattened

https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/i ... story.html

HOUSTON — The last time the New York Yankees entered the retractable-roofed environs of Minute Maid Park this deep in the fall, they lost, lost, lost and lost to the Houston Astros — the last of these, punctuated by a hail of hammer-like Lance McCullers Jr. curveballs, ending their season one step shy of the World Series. That was two long years ago.

As another American League Championship Series between the 107-win Astros and the 103-win Yankees got underway Saturday night, a highly anticipated collision of superteams that had seemed inevitable all season, it was instructive to contemplate what had changed between them and what had stayed the same since that epic duel of 2017.

There is plenty to explore on both sides of that equation, but the most impactful change is this: the Yankees will not be going 0-for-Texas this month, a critical fact they ensured with a thorough, 7-0 victory in Game 1 of the ALCS — an outcome that undid the six months’ worth of work the Astros put in to gain home-field advantage in this series, while keeping the Yankees undefeated in these playoffs.
