Tanaka had the best start thus far for New York in their ADLS series against Cleveland. 

Tanaka suffered through his worst start of the season against Houston on May 14, when he was roughed up for eight runs and seven hits - four homers - in 1 2/3 innings.

Keuchel started Game 2 of the ALDS and breezed through 5 2/3 frames, striking out seven while allowing one run, to make it four starts in a row surrendering two or fewer runs going back to the regular season.

Keuchel is 5-2 with a 1.24 ERA in seven career starts against New York.

Astros are 11-2 in their last 13 home games vs. a team with a losing road record while going 13-3 in their last 16 home games.

The Astros are 5-1 in Keuchel’s last 6 starts vs. Yankees.

New York is 2-6 in the last 8 meetings.


The total was set at 8 with nearly 80% on the OVER.
