The ALCS continues with Game 3 on Saturday as the Houston Astros and New York Yankees shift their series to Yankee Stadium. The Yankees could certainly use the home support now that they're in an 0-2 hole after the Astros won Game 2, 3-2, on Thursday.

Can the Astros push their opponents up against the wall by taking a commanding 3-0 lead? Or will the Yankees find another to overcome adversity to cut the series deficit in half?

Astros vs Yankees Prediction & Pick

The Astros dominated the Yankees during the regular season, which is a trend that's continued into the playoffs. Even though Houston has only outscored New York by a total of 7-4 in the ALCS, it's clear that the former's postseason success over the last few years is paying off.

The Astros turn to Cristian Javier as their starter, hoping he can help them take the 3-0 lead. He's kept the Yankees at bay over his career, going 1-0 with a 0.60 ERA in three career starts against them. Furthermore, he only allowed one run over 12 innings pitched against them this season.

Meanwhile, the Yankees are sending in Gerrit Cole, who went 2-0 with a 2.00 ERA in the ALDS. Though Cole has been solid against his former team, he did lose to the Astros earlier this season, giving up only one run in seven innings en route to the 3-0 loss.

The Yankees are too talented of a team to be this close to getting swept. Cole's experience — especially in the postseason — should help give his club the edge here, leading to a New York win.

Final Score Prediction: Astros: 2 | Yankees: 3

Astros vs Yankees Probable Starting Pitchers

The Houston Astros will look to Cristian Javier (11-9, 2.54 ERA) in Game 3 and the New York Yankees hand the ball to Gerrit Cole (13-8, 3.50 ERA).
