If I told you that Luis Cessa threw two innings, but didn’t tell you the final score of Game 3 of the ALCS, you would probably assume that the Yankees lost by a large margin. While the Yankees lost 4-1 to fall behind in the series 2-1, it was an exciting game, and the Yankees had Gerrit Cole more than once. Sadly, the Yankee offense was not able to capitalize despite the fact that Severino kept the Yankees in the ballgame despite pitching without his A-level command again.
The Astros are a great team, but games like Tuesday (and Game 2, for that matter) are the type that could make the Yankees lose some sleep. This was a winnable game, and what’s worse is that I’m not sure that anything could have been done differently.
