For the second time this month, New York topped Houston 5-3 on Wednesday night. After Houston defeated the Yankees in the 2017 AL Championship Series, winning all seven games, it was a sweet victory to win this game. “Look it’s great to go up against the best and have some success, no question about it.” said Aaron Boone. He continued saying “But I would say it;s just a long season. I think both sides have a lot of confidence that, yeah, we have a chance to have special seasons.”
Severino allowed four hits during the night, including Max Stassi’s two-run homer. He also walked one in, winning his sixth consecutive division. The right hand pitcher who hasn’t lost since April 10th at Boston, threw a five-hitter with 10 strikeouts for his first career complete game in a 4-0 victory over Houston on May 2nd. Astros Manager AJ Hinch said after the game “He’s elite for a reason and I think we saw why tonight. They’re a good team and you have to play well to beat them.”
Pitcher for the Astros Keuchel dropped his third straight start against them– including the playoffs. The left-hander gave up four runs and seven hits in five-plus innings. “Hopefully, we’ll see each other in October.” Yankees catcher Austin Romine, who scored twice during the game mentioned “He knows how to pitch, Anytime you see someone a lot, you start to pick up on some tendencies.”
