The Houston Astros and the New York Yankees will fight it out for Game 3 of their American League Championship Series on Monday night. The game has a scheduled start time of 8.08 p.m. ET and takes place from Yankee Stadium in New York City, New York. The game can be watched on TV on the FS1 network or online through live stream (details below).
For the Astros things could not have gone better in this series until now. They have immediately stretched out to a 2-0 lead in this best of seven series, and if they get another win here tonight then they would need to win just one more of the last four games to progress to the World Series 2017.
There is now little room for the Yankees to make more mistakes. They will be disappointed with having fallen 2-0 down in this series as they have lost both games by just 2-1, and things could have gone so differently had a few more things gone their way.
Now things switch to the Bronx and the Yankees must make home field count and claw their way back into this series one by one.
Interestingly, the Yankees have only won Elimination games so far this postseason. When the threat of elimination has not been hanging over them they have come up short, but as soon as they face a win or go home situation they have come up with the goods.
Today's game is not an elimination game, but it's not far away now. If they lose tonight they would potentially face four straight elimination games if they are to claim the pennant and go all the way to the World Series.
The Yankees were looked at prior to the season beginning as a team in transition, and no one expected them to make the postseason, let alone be fighting for the ALCS. They have exceeded expectations, but now that they are here, they will feel they are so close to making some big history. If they can win tonight they would be back in this series and their dream of a surprise World Series would remain alive.
