AJ Hinch managing in his first post-season game needs to be careful NOT to have an early hook on Keuchel #Astros

Masahiro Tanaka out after 5 innings

Tanaka allowed 2 solo HRs, 4 hits and a season-high 3 walks to the Astros. It is his sixth start of 5 IP or less this season after having just one all last year. Justin Wilson is in for the Yankees, who trail 2-0. Live on ESPN, WatchESPN

As expected, Joe Girardi is dipping into his bullpen early, going to lefty Justin Wilson to start the 6th. Masahiro Tanaka allowed 4 hits, 2 of them HRs, walked 3 and K'd 3 and was generally not sharp. Girardi hoping to use Wilson, Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller the rest of the way.

Amazin how the Carlos Gomez trade that fell threw to the #Mets helped both them (Cespedes) and the #Astros as much as it did

Gordon Edes ESPN Staff Writer 

While everyone raves about slugging Jays, Astros were 2d in majors in HRs with 230, only two fewer than Jays. Just another thing folks may not have known about the 'Stros.
