This is starting to become a habit for the Astros.

In the final analysis, the 2015 Yankees turned out to be just one game better than the 2014 Yankees, and that game turned out to be a harmless 3-0 loss in the one-game WC playoff to the Houston Astros. And in a disturbing parallel with last years team, this one was undone by their bats, or lack thereof.

Astros win wild-card game, face Royals in ALDS

On just three days rest, Dallas Keuchel tossed six shutout innings, and Colby Rasmus and Carlos Gomez homered to beat the Yankees in the AL wild card game 3-0. It's Houston's first postseason win since Game 6 of 2005 NLCS. Box score


Yankees down to final 3 outs

The Yankees trail the Astros 3-0 heading into the bottom of the ninth in the AL wild-card game. If New York can't come back, it'll have lost five straight postseason games (last win was Game 5 of 2012 ALDS), tying the longest losing streak in Yankees history. Live on ESPN, WatchESPN

Catchers do not like the phrase 'pitch framing.' Their preferred word is 'presentation.' Jason Castro doing a great job with that tonight.

Astros need nine more outs, but they won't come from Dallas Keuchel. A.J. Hinch has gone to his bullpen. First up, Tony Sipp.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi will be questioned after the game as to why he took a cruising Justin Wilson out with one out in the seventh and no one on. Girardi brought in his security blanket, Dellin Betances, who he used all season every chance he could. The problem? Wilson had thrown just 25 pitches and looked like he had more in the tank. Plus, the No. 8 batter, Chris Carter, was up for Houston. Betances came in and promptly gave up a run to make it 3-0 Astros.

Dallas Keuchel done after 6 innings

The Astros LHP struck out seven and walked one in six innings of shutout ball vs. the Yankees. Keuchel is the first starter with a scoreless postseason start on three days rest since 2003 (Josh Beckett). Tony Sipp is now in for Houston, which leads 3-0 in the 7th. Live on ESPN, WatchESPN


Astros add another run in the 7th

Astros 2B Jose Altuve hit an RBI single off Yankees RHP Dellin Betances to score Jonathan Villar in the seventh inning to give his team insurance and a 3-0 lead in the AL wild-card game. Live on ESPN, WatchESPN
