Yankees top Astros in West after sweep

After the last postseason series between the Houston Astros and the New York Yankees, every game between them lived differently.

Regardless of who the home club is, the fans are made to feel that there is more to the stadium than just the game.

The recently created rivalry between these two organizations gives baseball the extra spice we all want to see.

Beginning last Friday, September 1, the New York Yankees and Houston Astros play a three-game series at Minute Maid Park.

The Broncs were very good in the first two games, hitting at the right time and their pitching responding in key moments.

This Sunday, September 3rd, will be the last game of the 3-match series and the regular round match between the two teams.

For the Yankees, the starter will be Michael King, who plays more of a relief role, so he’s not expected to go long on commitment.

Christian Javier, on the other hand, is the starter for Houston and faces the Yankees for the first time this season.

The Aaron Boone-led team will be looking to put the finishing touches on the series and the strategy of attacking the opener early will continue.

Backed by Aaron Judge’s offense and a bullpen that could be at its best in 2023, they could get the sweep.

On the other hand, Dusty Baker’s team will be looking for their starter to reach the fifth inning to avoid being swept at home.

Additionally, the key for Houston will be Yordon Alvarez and Jose Abreu waking up the offense, especially late in the game.

In the first two games, the Cuban went 2-for-11 with a pair of runs and an RBI.

In this 2023 season, the Yankees are 4-2 against Houston as they tied it at two in the last series at Yankee Stadium.
