Then New York Yankees and the Houston Astros will both be gunning for a victory on Friday when they meet at Minute Maid Park.

Tanaka gets the Game 1 nod after putting together the best start for New York in the ALDS – a seven-inning effort in Game 3 in which he scattered three hits and struck out seven without allowing a run. The Japan native is enjoying a string of 14 consecutive scoreless frames going back to the regular season and owns 22 strikeouts in that span. 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 gets the Game 1 nod after Justin Verlander was used for four innings of relief in the clinching game of the ALDS in Boston. The 29-year-old 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, including six scoreless innings in the 2015 wild card game at Yankee Stadium.

Oddsmakers opened the Astros as 170-moneyline favorites versus the Yankees, while the game’s total opened at 8.

The New York Yankees already stared down four elimination games in the postseason and knocked off the American League’s top seed with a Game 5 victory over the Cleveland Indians in the AL Division Series on Wednesday, and things are not getting any easier. The Yankees will try to avoid falling into another quick hole when they visit the Houston Astros for Game 1 of the AL Championship Series on Friday night.

New York’s hero in Game 5 of the ALDS turned out to be shortstop Didi Gregorius, who homered twice off probable AL Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber and went 3-for-4 in the clinching game after going 1-for-13 in the first four games of the series. “Now that I’m here, being in this unbelievable, unbelievable organization, everything, all the history and everything that’s been here with the team, and guys are helping each other, backing each other up, everybody is protecting each other, it’s the best thing because everybody is together and the team is really united,” Gregorius told reporters. The Yankees (241) were the only team in the AL to hit more home runs in the regular season than the Astros (238), who have been sitting around since polishing off a four-game victory over the Boston Red Sox in the ALDS on Monday and are happy to hold homefield advantage over New York. “The Indians won over 100 games and had the best record in the American League, but I don’t think that means anything,” Houston shortstop Carlos Correa told “It doesn’t mean they’re the toughest opponent. The Yanks are tough, as well, as they just proved, coming back from a 2-0 deficit to beat the team with the best record in the AL. That’s huge for them. They bring momentum into the series. It’s just good to start at home.”
