The Yankees had chances, but they were unable to capitalize. Tuesday night saw Astros ace Gerrit Cole shut down NY, holding them scoreless for seven innings in a 4-1 victory.

Yankee Stadium in the postseason is a loud, tough venue to play in.

It's going to be a bullpen day for NY as it stands, which puts Chad Green in line for the start. Green didn't factor in the decision in his last outing, which came in a relief outing at home in Game 3 against Houston Tuesday. Like Severino, Cole gave up some hits and walks early on.
