Nemesis no more: Yankees finally conquer Dallas Keuchel

The Astros' ace has a history of owning New York in the postseason, but Game 5 saw him surrender four runs in less than five innings, leaving Houston dangling by a thread in the ALCS.

Ese segundo jonrón de Javy Báez es el número 32 por un pelotero de 25 años de edad o menos esta postemporada, lo cual es una nueva marca histórica. La marca anterior era de 28, establecida en la postemporada 2015. Al momento de redactar estas líneas, los 5 cuadrangulares conectados en los partidos de hoy han sido todos por jugadores de 25 años de edad o menos: Gary Sánchez, Willson Contreras, Báez y Cody Bellinger.

Aaron Judge said the Yankees are feeling confident heading into Game 6 of the ALCS -- particularly after defeating nemesis Dallas Keuchel in Game 5. "He doesn't make mistakes," said Judge. "If he ever gets into a groove, man, he's unhittable. So for us, it was just about -- just keep having quality at-bats, and kind of feed off this momentum into Houston."

Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka threw seven scoreless innings, while Keuchel did not make it through five innings.
