10/17/2017 CC Sabathia, NYY, P
CC Sabathia improved to 1-0, allowing three hits and four walks over 6.0 scoreless innings, as the New York Yankees defeated the Houston Astros 8-1 on Monday. Sabathia struck out five, ending the game with a 0.00 ERA and 1.17 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: The grizzled veteran was once again the right man for the job, keeping Houston's dangerous lineup off balance all night in a virtual must-win scenario for New York. Sabathia is now an astounding 10-0 with a 1.69 ERA in 13 starts following a Yankees loss for the season, plus he's yet to allow a homer while striking out 19 in 15 2/3 innings during this postseason.
10/17/2017 Charlie Morton, Hou, P
Charlie Morton fell to 0-1, allowing seven runs on six hits and two walks in 3.2 innings, as the Houston Astros lost to the New York Yankees 8-1 on Monday. Morton struck out three, ending the game with a 17.18 ERA and 2.18 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Morton didn't pitch nearly as badly as his line indicated, as most of the hits he allowed weren't of the hard variety and he was victimized by a cheap three-run homer to right by Todd Frazier in the third inning. The right-hander could fare better if he gets the call in a potential Game 7 at Minute Maid Park, as he went 10-3 with a 3.34 ERA in 16 home starts during the regular season.
10/17/2017 Will Harris, Hou, P
Will Harris allowed one run on one hit in 0.1 innings as the Houston Astros lost to the New York Yankees 8-1 on Monday. Harris did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 27.00 ERA and 3.00 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Harris came in to stop the bleeding with Houston down 4-0 in the fourth inning but instead threw gasoline on the fire, uncorking a wild pitch to let in a run and surrendering Aaron Judge's game-breaking three-run homer. The right-hander also had his struggles in Yankee Stadium during the regular season, permitting three runs in 1 1/3 innings across a pair of appearances.
10/17/2017 Collin McHugh, Hou, P
Collin McHugh walked one and didn't allow a hit in 4.0 scoreless innings as the Houston Astros lost to the New York Yankees 8-1 on Monday. McHugh struck out three, ending the game with a 0.00 ERA and 0.25 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: McHugh set down 12 of the 13 men he faced in his 2017 postseason debut. Though obviously unavailable for Tuesday's Game 4, the usual starter could play a role out of the bullpen if this series gets further extended.
10/17/2017 Tommy Kahnle, NYY, P
Tommy Kahnle allowed one hit and one walk without giving up a run in 1.0 inning as the New York Yankees defeated the Houston Astros 8-1 on Monday. Kahnle struck out one, ending the game with a 0.00 ERA and 1.00 WHIP on the season.
10/17/2017 George Springer, Hou, RF
George Springer went 1 for 4 Monday as the Houston Astros fell to the New York Yankees 8-1. He ended the game with a .091 batting average.
10/17/2017 Aaron Judge, NYY, RF
Aaron Judge went 1 for 3 with a home run and three RBIs Monday as the New York Yankees beat the Houston Astros 8-1. The homer was his first of the season. He ended the game with a .200 batting average.

Analysis: Judge broke the game open by greeting reliever Will Harris with a screaming line drive into the left field seats to stake New York to an 8-0 lead in the fourth inning. It's the AL home run champ's first long ball since the Yankees' wild-card game win over Minnesota. Though he's had a really rough postseason on the road, he's 4 for 15 with seven RBIs in New York's four playoff home games.
10/17/2017 Brett Gardner, NYY, LF
Brett Gardner went 0 for 3 Monday as the New York Yankees topped the Houston Astros 8-1. Gardner scored once. He ended the game with a .200 batting average.
10/17/2017 José Altuve, Hou, 2B
Jose Altuve went 0 for 4 Monday as the Houston Astros fell to the New York Yankees 8-1. He ended the game with a .417 batting average.

Analysis: CC Sabathia and the New York bullpen finally figured out how to get Altuve out after he went 5 for 8 with two runs scored over the first two ALCS games. Still a scorching 13 for 27 with seven runs scored this postseason, the AL batting champ owns a .367 (11 for 30) career average against Game 4 starter Sonny Gray.
10/17/2017 Gary Sánchez, NYY, C
Gary Sanchez went 0 for 4 Monday as the New York Yankees topped the Houston Astros 8-1. He ended the game with a .000 batting average.

Analysis: While the Yankees' offense broke out in a return home, its cleanup hitter has still yet to get back on track. Sanchez is 0 for 12 for the series and 2 for 24 with 12 strikeouts over his last six games.
10/17/2017 Cameron Maybin, Hou, CF
Cameron Maybin went 1 for 3 Monday as the Houston Astros fell to the New York Yankees 8-1. He ended the game with a .333 batting average.
10/17/2017 Didi Gregorius, NYY, SS
Didi Gregorius went 1 for 4 Monday as the New York Yankees beat the Houston Astros 8-1. He ended the game with a .167 batting average.

Analysis: Gregorius has had a quiet ALCS thus far, having gone 2 for 12 with no RBIs or runs scored through the first three games. That could change in Tuesday's matchup, though, as he's 5 for 8 lifetime off Houston starter Lance McCullers Jr.
10/17/2017 Carlos Correa, Hou, SS
Carlos Correa went 1 for 4 Monday as the Houston Astros lost to the New York Yankees 8-1. He ended the game with a .364 batting average.

Analysis: Houston's Game 2 hero did manage to extend his postseason hitting streak to six games but otherwise wasn't much of a factor, much like most of the Astros' lineup against CC Sabathia. Correa won't have history on his side for Tuesday's Game 4, as he's 1 for 14 lifetime off Yankees starter Sonny Gray.
10/17/2017 Starlin Castro, NYY, 2B
Starlin Castro went 1 for 4 Monday as the New York Yankees topped the Houston Astros 8-1. Castro scored once. He ended the game with a .273 batting average.
10/17/2017 Josh Reddick, Hou, RF
Josh Reddick went 0 for 2 Monday as the Houston Astros lost to the New York Yankees 8-1. He ended the game with a .000 batting average.
10/17/2017 Alex Bregman, Hou, 3B
Alex Bregman went 1 for 4 with an RBI Monday as the Houston Astros fell to the New York Yankees 8-1. He ended the game with a .222 batting average.

Analysis: Bregman drove in the Astros' lone run by drawing a bases-loaded walk in the ninth inning. Though the young third baseman has a pair of homers during this postseason, he's just 3 for 18 over his last six games.
10/17/2017 Greg Bird, NYY, 1B
Greg Bird went 1 for 3 with a double Monday as the New York Yankees topped the Houston Astros 8-1. Bird scored once. He ended the game with a .300 batting average.
10/17/2017 Aaron Hicks, NYY, CF
Aaron Hicks went 1 for 4 Monday as the New York Yankees beat the Houston Astros 8-1. Hicks scored once. He ended the game with a .182 batting average.
10/17/2017 Marwin González, Hou, LF
Marwin Gonzalez went 0 for 3 Monday as the Houston Astros lost to the New York Yankees 8-1. Gonzalez scored once. He ended the game with a .000 batting average.

Analysis: After leading the Astros with 90 RBIs during the regular season, Gonzalez's bat has been mostly silent in these playoffs. He's now 0 for 12 over his last four games and 3 for 24 this postseason.
10/17/2017 Yuli Gurriel, Hou, 1B
Yuli Gurriel went 0 for 4 Monday as the Houston Astros fell to the New York Yankees 8-1. He ended the game with a .222 batting average.
