The Astros’ utter inability to produce runs has caught up to them in this series, and the Yankees have made them pay. Behind the ace-caliber pitching of Masahiro Tanaka and C.C. Sabathia, the Yankees have managed to put the Astros’ backs against the wall. Their hitting has also improved, although Verlander had their number the last time that these teams met. The Astros won’t go down quietly — bats like Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa never do — but a lack of depth in the order has been exposed. All of this combined with a bullpen that has served the Yankees well will make things difficult for Houston, a young team without much experience in this position. However, the Astros undoubtedly have the talent to make a comeback, especially at home where Houston fans have latched on.
