Yankees grab 3-2 ALCS lead over Astros

[Box Score]
[River Ave Blues]

The script continued to flip in the Bronx on Wednesday night. The Yankees won their third straight game in the ALCS and swept the leg of the series in the Bronx, winning by a score of 5-0.

The take home messages from this one:

Aaron Judge gave the Yankees an early 2-0 lead off Dallas Keuchel

Judge is now hitting .313 in the series with 6 RBI and four extra base hits.

Masahiro Tanaka has morphed into an ace, throwing the best innings of his career. He went seven shutout innings, allowing three hits, one walk and striking out eight to earn the win.

Gary Sanchez added the death blow, homering to put the Yankees up 5-0. Tommy Kahnle went the final two innings, allowing the Yankees to keep the rest of the pen rested for the putaway game Friday night when it goes back to Houston.

That game will feature Justin Verlander vs. Luis Severino in what should be a 12-round title fight.
