For Tanaka, it's about whether he'll opt out of the final three years and $67 million on his contract - hoping to strike it even richer - or if he'll stick around. George Springer, the Astros leadoff hitter still hitless in the ALCS, then drew a walk, and Jose Altuve ended an 0-for-12 slide with a two-run single that made it 3-0 and chased Severino.
Young first baseman Greg Bird produced in the playoffs and certainly has pop. He's missed most of the past two seasons with injuries, so the Yankees are eager to see what he can do with a full complement of at-bats.
"Now we chase the ultimate prize", Astros manager A.J. Hinch said.
The teams have a long history after playing in the NL West division for several decades, including during the 1970s when the Dodgers were a dominant team that drove the Astros, and the rest of the league for that matter, mad.
However, Seager is capable of completely transforming the offense if he's even close to 100 percent. But he said he felt "horrible" that he "screwed up" and took full responsibility in a talk with his team.
He has until Oct. 3 - three days after the World Series - to exercise his opt out. That's right, the Big Unit, who had thrown 104 pitches the previous night, entered the game in the eighth inning after the Yankees had taken a 2-1 lead on an Alfonso Soriano homer.
The Dodgers are making their first return to the World Series since 1988, when they beat the Oakland Athletics in five games. JV had 13 strikeouts in Game 2 and struck out eight Friday night over his seven innings of work.
"I grew up watching those guys; I love those guys", said McCullers Jr., who starred at Jesuit High on North Himes Avenue, the same street as the Yankees' minor-league complex. Behind him will be Verlander, the ALCS MVP who is on arguably the best run of his entire career. Los Angeles hit their stride in early June, and went on a sublime 52-9 stretch that propelled them to 90 wins with a week left to play in August. Luis Gonzalez's game-winning RBI base hit was the third walk-off hit of the series, and the first by Arizona. We see is during the regular season and the 162 game grind but in October the chess match goes to a higher level.
"They are a talented group, the best in the American League all year", said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. "This is one of the biggest". "I threw against the Royals and threw great for four innings or so".
"He just lost his command", Girardi said. That's when Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina ripped New York's heart out with a two-run shot to deep left, one that was too far for Mets left fielder Endy Chavez to miraculously rob again. It will be the first Game 7 for the Yankees since the 2004 ALCS, when the Boston Red Sox came back to claim the AL pennant after losing the first three games in that series. That's 26 strikeouts this postseason for the rookie slugger, matching the record set by Alfonso Soriano while with the Yankees in 2003. "Dead serious. Stepped off the mound, looked down". Armed with a power fastball and a biting curve, he can hold any lineup down at least twice through the order.
The Yankees had hoped the abbreviated nature of his last outing might pay dividends on Friday, but that was not the case. Fortunately Judge's dinger was late when the game was out of reach for New York.
"Plan on it being anything from an expected all hands on deck to Charlie Morton pitching nine", Hinch said.
Today is a true " Super Sunday " in the Premier League , as Everton host Arsenal and Spurs take on Liverpool at Wembley. Tottenham are themselves learning to love Wembley after a difficult start to their season-long tenancy there.
