ALDS: Game 2 Home Cookin' Satisfies Astros but Not the BoSox
Trusting those who have more time than most of us to analyze these things, MLB's home teams win 54% of games played.
Furthermore, in best-of-fives, seamheads have posted numbers showing that the team winning Game 1 goes on to win 72% of those series.
If that's the case, the Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox are well and truly ahead of schedule.
Maybe, but not at hot as the 'Stros. The Sox, though got their dinner burned.
Seems like the big stage suits the 'Stros' other little dude just fine.
Aaron Judge and Gary Sánchez each blasted homers of the playoffs to chase David Price, who's still trying to figure out October baseball. Judge now has two for the post-season, and Sánchez matched him with another shot in this one:
At least there's gonna be one Game 4 in this round.
Boston went 3-6 at Yankee Stadium this season, and with the odds seeming to swing in the visitors' favor right now, they've gotta like their chances to at least bring this series back home and justify the probabilities.
Cleveland, meanwhile, looks to be in big, big trouble.
