Ross says Game 4 will be 'business as usual'
Torre explains Game 4 postponement
|No scoring plays available|
No pitcher wants to throw three straight balls to start an at-bat. But Justin Verlander and Brad Peacock each faced that frightening situation on Friday -- and they were able to escape to help keep Houston's World Series hopes alive.
In seeking to become the 14th team in postseason history to rally from a 2-0 series deficit, the New York Yankees will turn to the most veteran member of their staff.
George Springer's leaping catch at the wall, preventing Todd Frazier from an extra-base hit and plating runs, left the Yankees in disbelief and had Justin Verlander all lit.
The Yankees' old man has been money all October, so with the Baby Bombers struggling and the Astros jolting awake, he must deliver a Hollywood ending.
Like the rest of the Houston Astros' pitchers, save Game 6 hero Justin Verlander, Dallas Keuchel will be available out of the bullpen for Saturday night's ALCS Game 7, with the Yankees also taking an all-hands-on-deck approach.
Eduardo Perez says if the Astros play with the same "zest" in Game 7 they did on Friday, they should prevail while Mark Teixeira says the Yankees' bullpen could be a deciding factor.
