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.
This is a rematch from the teams’ 2017 ALCS, which the Astros won on their way to their first World Series title.
