Dallas Keuchel is out, the Astros' bullpen is in. Of the 58 best-of-7 postseason series that have been tied 2-2, the Game 5 winner has won series 41 times (70.7 percent).

Dellin Betances atribuye su descontrol a su agresividad

Todo está bien con el espigado relevista dominicano, excepto que no puede lanzar strikes, lo que para un relevista de las últimas entradas es mortal. Por lo tanto, en realidad, no todo está bien con Betances actualmente.

Aaron Judge continues to answer his MVP candidate rival, Jose Altuve. While Altuve looked like the far superior player in the first two games in Houston, Judge is beginning to take over the series in the Bronx. After his big hits in the Yankees' ALCS Game 4 comeback win, Judge added an RBI double in the third to extend the Yankees' lead in Game 5.

In his third career postseason start against the Yankees, Dallas Keuchel has finally blinked. He allowed a pair of two-out hits -- a double to Starlin Castro and an RBI single to Greg Bird -- in the second inning. Keuchel hadn't given up a run in 14 previous innings against the Yankees in the postseason -- six scoreless innings in the 2015 wild-card game and seven shutout frames in Game 1 of this ALCS.

The Yankees jumped on top of the Astros in the second. Against their nemesis, Dallas Keuchel, Starlin Castro smashed a two-out double and then was driven home by Greg Bird, who laced an RBI single to right.

Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka escaped the first scoring chance of Game 5. The Astros wasted Yuli Gurriel's leadoff double in the second. After Alex Bregman moved Gurriel to third, Carlos Beltran and Marwin Gonzalez failed to bring him home. Houston would have liked to have gone out to an early lead to take the Yankee Stadium crowd out of this game.

Jets coach Todd Bowles insisted that Mo Wilkerson (pictured) and Leonard Williams are "playing well" even though they have no sacks. Bowles got testy when pressed: "Nobody is playing great. When you're 3-3, you're playing average football. It has nothing to do with Mo or Leonard. It has to do with our entire team. I'm not going to sit here and make excuses about two guys when we have 11 guys in each side of the ball. If you want to nitpick, go for it. I've made my comment. Take it or leave it."

Jets injury report: Bilal Powell made it to the practice field -- he didn't last week -- but still didn't take part in team drills. He remains a question mark. Mo Wilkerson appears to be on a no-practice, play-on-Sunday routine. Robby Anderson hurt his ankle Sunday and finished the game, usually an encouraging sign.

Keuchel, Tanaka take the hill in the Bronx

Dallas Keuchel is coming off a dominant Game 1 performance in Houston, but has struggled on the road during his career. However, he has a 1.41 ERA in six career starts vs. the Yankees. Tanaka was less-than-impressive in Game 1 and has been far better at home this season than he has away from Yankee Stadium.

Jets did not practice: Mo Wilkerson, Robby Anderson (ankle) and Bilal Powell.

Don't mind us. Just watching Aaron Judge launch BP home runs before Game 5 of the ALCS at Yankee Stadium. A few pitches before this one, he knocked one onto the screen covering Monument Park, and his next time up, he crushed two straight balls way beyond that, into the standing room area above the sports bar in center field. Wow.

Vía Yankees: Alineación para el quinto partido de la Serie de Campeonato contra los Astros. Los Yankees buscan convertirse en el segundo equipo en la historia en remontar un déficit de 0-2 en series de postemporada de forma consecutiva y ganarlas ambas. En 1985, los Reales de Kansas City remontaron contra los Azulejos de Toronto en la Serie de Campeonato de la Liga Americana e hicieron lo mismo en la Serie Mundial para vencer a los Cardenales de San Luis.
