While their backs aren’t up against the wall completely, the New York Yankees are not in the most advantageous of situations after dropping the opening two games of the ALCS in Houston against the Astros.
But a return home to Yankee Stadium and the lift that it provides to the Bronx Bombers does not mean the Pinstripes are dead yet. That being said, there are some changes that should be made in order to get back in this series.
New York will turn to CC Sabathia, fresh off a solid performance in Game 5 of the ALDS against the Cleveland Indians in which the Yankees completed a comeback from 2-0 down to take the best-of-five series. The 37-year-old southpaw was exceptional for a majority of that night, going 4.1 innings, allowing one hit and striking out nine before allowing four-straight singles and a pair of runs.
The Astros will roll out Charlie Morton, a 10-year veteran who had made just one postseason start prior to this October. In his one outing in the ALDS against the Boston Red Sox, Morton went 4.1 innings, allowing two runs on seven hits while striking out six.
