Yankees couldn't get past Justin Verlander
In the second game of the series, Aaron Boone's team managed to score just one run. And although they only missed three themselves, they lost. Legendary Astros pitcher Justin Verlander proved an insurmountable obstacle for the Yankees. Luis Severino got off to a solid start for the New York Yankees, allowing three runs in 6 complete innings. But Severino's quality play did not save him from a pitcher's mauling.
Gerrit Cole, 6-1 with a 3.14 ERA in 13 games this season, will pitch for the Yankees in game three of the series.
Houston evened the score
After losing 3-6 in the ninth inning of the first game, Dusty Baker's team took what they started in the second. Kyle Tucker's three-point home run in the sixth inning gave the team the 3-1 win. Pitcher Justin Verlander got the win, allowing just one run over seven complete innings. Rafael Montero recorded the save.
Cristian Javier is the starting pitcher for Houston's third game against the Yankees, 4-3 and 3.07 ERA in 13 games, with nine starts for the pitcher.
The score in the season series is 1-1.
The Yankees beat the Astros 4 out of 6 games in the last championship.
Expert Betting Tips
In the second game of the series, the Yankees did a great job on defense but could not prove themselves on the bat, failing to get through Justin Verlander. It will be easier for New York in game three against pitcher Javier. Gerrit Cole will surely pull up on defense, so even a few runs will be enough for the Yankees to win.
Prediction: Yankees will win.
