Houston is red hot as they are 7-0 in their last seven games overall, 10-2 in their last 12 games on the road, and 5-0 in their last five games against these Yankees. However, the Astros have struggled at Yankee Stadium as they are just 7-13 in their last 20 games at New York. The Yankees are just 3-6 in their last nine games overall but will be happy they are home as they are 11-3 in their last 14 games at Yankee Stadium.
Houston finishes off the sweep and clinches their second consecutive AL pennant.
