An afternoon pitching matchup worth the price of admission.

A matinee in the Bronx with a stud pitching matchup. For the New York Yankees, Gerrit Cole, the reigning AL Pitcher of the Month, faces his former teammates from Houston in the final game of the series.

New York has won both games against the Astros and seven of their last eight overall. The offense found some caffeine and started hitting the ball well; Giancarlo Stanton is red hot right now.

The combination of a rolling offense and Cole on the bump sets up for a possible sweep of the hated Astros.
