The Astros and Yankees were #1 and #2 this year in home runs in the American League, so of course Game 1 of the ALCS was a tight, low-scoring affair that was won on terrific baserunning and situational hitting. Luis Severino will go for the Yankees against Astros starter Justin Verlander at 3 CT on FOX.
The National League Championship Series will get underway tonight at 7 CT on TBS. The Dodgers announced Corey Seager is out for the LCS with a back injury, a major blow to their chances. Jose Quintana takes to the hill against Clayton Kershaw.
The games have been pretty intense, so follow Jon Lester’s lead.
