Astros took the lead in game one against the Yankees.

The Yankees had a chance to steal this game, but they failed.

Houston's rolling out Jameson Taillon in place of their ace, Justin Verlander.

If they had won, it would have been very positive for them.

They'd take the opener in the championship series and go from there.

After asking so much of his bullpen to win a match up in five games against Cleveland, Aaron Boone decided to withdraw them and live with the consequences.

He needed Clarke Schmidt and Frankie Montas to come up big. They didn't.

The Yankees lost largely due to poor hitting in the earlier innings.
