The Houston Astros announced their pitching rotation for the American League Championship Series on Friday. 

Zack Greinke gets the ball in Game 1 Saturday night, followed by Justin Verlander in Game 2 Sunday and Gerrit Cole in Game 3 in New York Tuesday.

The Astros hope Greinke, who was 8-1 with a 3.02 ERA since joining the Astros, can get them off to a good start against the Yankees.  After that, New York will face the Astros two Cy Young award candidates in Verlander and Cole.
