Yankees waste golden opportunity to take 2-0 lead over Astros in ALCS
Monday, October 14, 2019
At 11:58 p.m. CT Sunday night, Astros shortstop Carlos Correa ambushed a first-pitch fastball from Yankees pitcher J.A. Happ, belting it 394 feet into the right-field seats. Correa cupped his right hand behind his right ear before he rounded the bases, listening to the emphatic roar of the sellout crowd at Minute Maid Park — the same crowd he'd just sent into an absolute frenzy. Sure, the New York Yankees had come away with an American League Championship Series split in Houston.

Tuesday, October 15, 2019
With the best-of-seven series tied 1-1, New York's Luis Severino starts Game 3 on Tuesday against Gerrit Cole. Masahiro Tanaka began the opener for the Yankees and James Paxton was on the mound for Game 2. ''J.A. Happ could very much be in the mix, as well as I picture our bullpen being unleashed on that day,'' New York manager Aaron Boone said Monday as the series shifted to Yankee Stadium.

LEADING OFF: Nats a win from 1st World Series, Cole vs Yanks
Tuesday, October 15, 2019
Washington hasn't put a baseball team in the World Series since 1933, when the Senators lost to the New York Giants in five games. The nation's capital owns one MLB championship; the Senators won all the way back in 1924. There wasn't even a baseball team at all in Washington for more than three decades until the Montreal Expos franchise moved to town before the 2005 season and was renamed the Nationals.

Tuesday, October 15, 2019
Gerrit Cole walked into a conference room after one of his first spring training workouts with the Houston Astros in February 2018 and was met by about 10 people. ''There was charts, video, matching charts,'' Cole recalled. Cole transformed into perhaps the best pitcher in the major leagues after that one-hour presentation, increasing the usage of his four-seam fastball and curveball, pretty much dropping his two-seam sinker and attacking the top of the strike zone far more frequently.

Even if most players aren't thinking about it, the fluctuating baseball is altering the game on the field.

Yankees try to solve Astros' Cole in Game 3
Monday, October 14, 2019
The New York Yankees used their 2008 first-round pick on Gerrit Cole with the hope he would dominate opposing hitters and pitch in a postseason game someday. More than a decade later, Cole will take the Yankee Stadium mound, but for the Houston Astros, in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series on Tuesday afternoon. "I'm just going to treat it like it's the next game, man," Cole said.

Madison Bumgarner won LCS and World Series MVP honors in 2014, finishing that postseason with four wins, 52 2/3 innings and a memorable five-inning save in Game 7 of the World Series for the Giants. Jack Morris went 3-0 during Detroit's 1984 title run, then pitched a 10-inning shutout in Game 7 of the '91 series for Minnesota. Justin Verlander pitched 17 scoreless innings for Detroit over the course of two decisive Game 5s in the ALDS, in 2012 and 2013 against Oakland.

ALCS Game 2: Yankees pull starter James Paxton in the third inning
Monday, October 14, 2019
New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone showed just how quick his hook can be in Game 2 of the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros. Boone lifted starter James Paxton before he could even get out of the third inning. The Astros were only up 1-0, but Paxton was under pressure in the third after two singles put runners at first and second with Alex Bregman coming up to hit with one out.

Money well spent? Yankees, Astros big payrolls pay off as they battle for pennant
Sunday, October 13, 2019
The New York Yankees and Houston Astros are meeting in the American League Championship Series for the second time in three years, a validation that each team is putting their vast resources to good use. There were plenty of other teams in the top ten that have enjoyed recent success, but underachieved this season, such as the Chicago Cubs (first - $211,546,714), Boston Red Sox (fourth - $204,335,719), San Francisco Giants (fifth - $199,729,652), and Los Angeles Angels (sixth - $177,328,583). The two teams competing for the National League pennant also entered this season with a top-ten payroll, with the Washington Nationals having the third-highest payroll at $204,449,127, and St. Louis Cardinals' payroll was $165,253,599, in ninth, right behind Houston by a mere $399,001.
