Inside the Numbers of the ALCS battle : Astros vs Yankees

This is the matchup everybody has been talking about since really when Spring Training camps opened back in February. The two juggernauts of the American League in the Astros and Yankees set for a collision course in October.

Sometimes dreams do come true. It's about to happen tonight with the start of the ALCS at Minute Maid Park. The Astros and Yankees are fairly even in some categories but not all. Pitching is advantage Astros for sure. This season the two teams met 7 times with the Astros going 4-3 against the Bronx Bombers. Houston swept New York in April outscoring the Yanks 18-12. Then in June the Yankees won three out of four games outscoring the Astros 25-21.

None of that matters now.

That was then and this is now.

Two powerhouses that are both healthy.

Time to play this series out.
