The Houston Astros are one win away from a return trip to the World Series. Down 3-1, this is a must win or (stay) home game for the Sith. Unfortunately for the Yankees, they’ll be up against one of the best in the game in Justin Verlander. If the Yanks can somehow pull out a W, at least we will have baseball again tomorrow.

Here are tonight’s lineups. Giancarlo Stanton is back in after being sidelined for a while with a quad strain.

Today's Lineups

ASTROS YANKEES
George Springer - RF DJ LeMahieu - 1B
