At the same time, there might not even be a Game 6 - that would require one team to sweep Games 3-5 at Yankee Stadium - so it's possible the bullpen game can be avoided entirely.

Boone said it was likely that Aaron Hicks will be in the lineup regardless.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch added: "I'm not saving a thing and I'm not assuming rain".

The Astros have two workhorses in their rotation in Verlander and Cole, and while Greinke has labored a bit this postseason, he can still give his team 100-plus pitches, if necessary. "I saw water bottles and, like, two baseballs".

"We've put him in some tough spots, obviously, in the lineup, and then they're running and Altuve's first-pitch hitting, and the night's over there". The solo shot wound up being the deciding run in the game, thanks to a fantastic outing by Houston star Gerrit Cole, who didn't have his best stuff, but managed to hold NY to four hits through seven scoreless innings.

With a runner on second and two outs in the fifth, Torres tried to foil Cole by fouling off four pitches that were off the plate to extend the at-bat.

"I immediately watched the hitter", he said "The hitter tells you the most". The left-hander was pulled after allowing a run over 2 1/3 rocky innings in Game 2, and concerns were raised that he was tipping his pitches. He finished the regular season with a 2-1 record, a 3.95 ERA, a 1.098 WHIP, seven walks and 40 strikeouts over 41 innings of work in the majors this season. Yet, it was no different, he said, than at any other time he has played at Yankee Stadium throughout his 12-year career.

The bushy-haired Cole grew up in California rooting for the Yankees and was drafted by them 28th overall in 2008. Yuli Gurriel made it 4-0 with a sacrifice fly.

Interstellar Comet with a Familiar Look
It was given the name " Oumuamua ", which in Hawaiian means a messenger from afar arriving first. The object, a comet named C/2019 Q4 (Borisov), was recently sighted by the Minor Planet Center .

Can Severino provide a quality outing to match Cole, and help the Yankees to a Game 3 win? Edwin Encarnacion was 1 for 4 batting cleanup. NY has a team batting average of.255 this postseason, Gleyber Torres has lead them with an average of.417, including seven extra base hits and 10 RBIs.

Boone also doubled down on his vote of confidence for struggling catcher Gary Sánchez, who is 2 for 21 this postseason.

Sanchez, who has a good arm but is otherwise an very bad catcher, also took a pass on trying to block a breaking ball in the dirt from Zack Britton in the seventh inning and the resulting wild pitch gave the Astros their fourth run.

Both Boone and Hinch announced Game 4 - the regularly scheduled Game 4 on Wednesday - will be a bullpen game. "Trying to make good medical evaluations. see how he's doing out there, try and have real frank conversations".

"I know we'll respond well", Ottavino said.

The crux of those talks will be on finding a way to score. But I'd also regret not using somebody if we have a chance to win. "Stick to our strengths".

"I've been working hard on days I don't pitch".
