Hinch told reporters that the Astros has a huge advantage with both Keuchel and Verlander going back to back to open the series.
So, this season marks the first trip to the ALCS for the Astros, and it is also the first trip for two local guys on the roster. Houston pitchers this season have actually quelled Judge. "But now we look back on it and it's probably one of the most magical times that I'll have in my career and it's something I'll never forget, for sure". "There's really not a weakness on either side". After recording two hits, including a two-run homer, in the wild-card victory over the Minnesota Twins, the rookie slugger went 1-for-20 with a playoff series-record 16 strikeouts in the division series against the Cleveland Indians. In Game 4, their pitchers' fastballs averaged a staggering 98 miles per hour, never once dipping below 96 - and that was with Chapman, who sometimes touches 102 and 103 miles per hour, not even participating.
In 341 regular-season at-bats that ended before the pitcher got to two strikes against him, Altuve batted.446 with a.739 slugging percentage. Often, their first pinch-hitter off the bench is Carlos Beltran, a future Hall-of-Famer with 435 career homers.

The American League Championship Series gets started tonight in Houston, with the AL West champion Astros hosting the wild-card Yankees. "I mean, especially now seeing me and Bregman having so much success they are going to be more blocks of scouts going down there to find some talent", said Giles.
The Astros will send Justin Verlander to the mound in Game 2. the six-time All-Star has been near-perfect since joining Houston from the Tigers moments before the August 31 waiver-trade deadline.
Verlander may be the one who gets them there. In particular, it will bear watching how a Yankees bullpen loaded with hard-throwing relievers fares against an Astros offense that mashed heaters to the tune of.301/.373/.525 during the regular season. Jeff says this is a longer series than the five-game ALDS.
