The New York Yankees scored first in the bottom of the first when Brett Gardner walked with the bases loaded, but the Houston Astros dominated the remainder of Thursday night's rescheduled ALCS Game 4.
The Astros took control en route to an 8-3 win with three-run home runs by George Springer and Carlos Correa in the third and sixth innings, respectively. Gary Sanchez answered with a three-run homer of his own in the bottom of the sixth, but that would be all for New York's scoring.
Houston added insurance runs in each of the game's final two innings.
Zack Greinke was good for the Astros, going 4 1/3 innings with five strikeouts and four walks. He allowed one run on three hits. Conversely, Masahiro Tanaka struggled. Over five innings, he allowed four runs (three runs) on four hits. He had been lights out this postseason. It didn't help that the Yankees committed four errors.
Facing elimination, the Yankees will face Justin Verlander in Game 5 on Friday night. Should they extend the series to a Game 6, Gerrit Cole awaits.
