The Astros and Dodgers each attempt to cut their magic number to one

MLB: ALCS-Houston Astros at New York Yankees Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

After a rough outing nine days ago out of the bullpen, the Astros call upon RHP Lance McCullers in an effort to extend their series lead over the Yankees to 3-1. The Yankees counter with RHP Sonny Gray, who hasn’t been used in game action almost two week. He too had a rough outing last time out, surrendering three runs on four walks and three hits in 3.1 innings at Cleveland.
