Several Astros pitchers told me they were showered with beer and almost hit by beer cans thrown from the stands into the visitor's bullpen. An Astros staff member said he saw a woman get hit by a beer can in the back of the head and apparently she had to be taken to get medical attention.

Cole wasn't dominant, but still handles Yankees

Astros starter Gerrit Cole wasn't at his best Tuesday, but he still held the Yankees scoreless over seven innings to help Houston to a 4-1 win in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series. Houston holds a 2-1 lead in the series.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Didi Gregorius, who went 0-for-4 and left 5 men on base, took full responsibility for the loss to the Astros tonight: “I didn't come through for the team when I had the opportunity, so I think that's why most of the game was on me. I was the one that failed, not the whole team.”

Cole pitches Astros past Yankees 4-1 for 2-1 lead in ALCS

A gritty Gerrit Cole held the New York Yankees scoreless without his sharpest stuff, Jose Altuve sparked Houston at the plate and the Astros locked down a 4-1 victory Tuesday to take a 2-1 lead in the AL Championship Series.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

On a day when Gerrit Cole was not at his sharpest, he still blanked the Yankees over seven innings. The Astros got homers from Jose Altuve and Josh Reddick and reclaimed home-field advantage in the ALCS with a 4-1 win over the Yankees. Game 4 is scheduled for Wednesday, but the weather forecasts for the evening are dire.

After hitting his 3rd HR of the postseason, Gleyber Torres is now batting .417 (10-for-24) with 4 doubles and 10 RBI in 6 games. His solo HR was his 10th RBI of the postseason, breaking a tie with Washington's Howie Kendrick for the RBI lead (9RBI coming into tonight), and his 7th extra base hit, breaking a tie with St. Louis's Paul Goldschmidt and Marcell Ozuna (6XBH coming into tonight). Nationals and Cardinals play later tonight.

Aaron Boone on Adam Ottavino: "If we're going to go deep in this, he's going to play a big role in that. There's some spots in this lineup where he's going to have to get big outs, and have the confidence that he has all the weapons to do that."

Luis Severino threw 97 pitches (63 for strike) over 4 1/3 innings pitched, allowing 2 earned runs on 5 hits, 2 of them solo home runs by Jose Altuve and Josh Reddick.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

Just when Gerrit Cole looked locked in, he issued a pair of two-out walks on nine pitches in the fourth. He worked around it but his pitch count is up to 70. Cole has walked four batters in the game, already a season high.

The Yankees are 0-for-4 with runners in scoring position through 4 innings; have left 2 or more men on base in 3 out of the 4 innings played.

Aaron Boone on starting Aaron Hicks as his number 9 hitter today. Hicks has drawn two walks off Gerrit Cole. Boone: "Obviously, it's been a couple months since he's played, but I certainly like his potential at-bat quality at the bottom of our lineup."

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Luis Severino finishes the 4th inning with 90 pitches. The last time he threw 90 pitches or more was Sep. 25, 2018 (97 pitches; 5.0 IP) vs. Tampa Bay in a 9-2 win for the Yankees. Severino made only three starts this regular season after suffering from right shoulder rotator cuff inflammation and a lat strain.
