BIG MAPLE: LHP James Paxton (6.0IP, 4H, 1ER, 4BB, 9K, 1WP) earned his first career postseason win in ALCS Game 5 vs. Houston.his 112 pitches were the most by a Yankee this season (reg. or postseason).
"The only thing I remember is just thanking God for the opportunity to go to another World Series", Altuve, who called his teammates "the MVPs" of the game, said of his thoughts while running around the bases.
The Yankees passed on adding premier starting pitchers in recent years to build a super bullpen, and with the season on the line, it failed them in a matchup against a weaker Houston bullpen.
With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Altuve hit a walk-off home run off Aroldis Chapman to give the Astros a 6-4 victory and put them in next week's World Series against the Washington Nationals. "In spring training we talked about winning the division and putting ourselves in a good spot in the postseason and win the World Series, and we came up short". It's why we worked our tail off to get as many wins as we could.
Just a week ago it looked like this was going to be the year the Yankees won their first World Series since 2009 and the 28th in franchise history.
"When it comes down to it, it's black or white", Judge added. It's about what's best for the team and it's do anything you possibly can to get the baton to the next guy. We weren't able to do that. "We always got the job done and this time we didn't get the job done when it counted".

With 50 players across two rosters, 18 pressure-packed half-innings and 324 pitches thrown by a total of 14 different pitchers over four-plus hours of high-intensity baseball, Game 6 of the American League Championship Series between the Houston Astros and New York Yankees on Saturday night had untold millions of possible permutations for selecting the player, the pitch and the moment that would bring the entire endeavor to a dramatic and satisfying end.
"It was a roller coaster of emotions from DJ tying it up there in the ninth and Altuve walking it off there", Judge said. "And I think all of that adds into find a way to win the game". We lost to Boston last year and the year before to Houston, and you think about that all offseason every single day. Despite being the best team in baseball during the regular season with runners in scoring position, that output failed to carry over into this series. "I reject it a little bit but I don't really get caught up in the question, either".
Outside of LeMahieu, Gleyber Torres and Urshela in Game 6, the Yankees lineup couldn't get anything going and failed time and time again with runners in scoring position.
When the ball went over the wall, Chapman said "for that split second, I couldn't believe it".
Neither time hit well at all during the series as the Yankees actually had the edge over Houston in batting average and total hits but the Astros got the big ones when they needed it and didn't strike out almost as much. "That was the difference in the series".
