The New York Yankees go for the sweep of the Houston Astros after shutting them out in the first two games of the series.

The New York Yankees rode Gerrit Cole to an epic 1-0 win and a second consecutive shutout of the Houston Astros on Saturday. On Sunday, they’ll hand the ball to Jameson Taillon to go for the sweep in the last game before the All-Star Break.

The Toronto Blue Jays also lost Saturday, so the Yankees now have sole possession of third place in the AL East. They trail first-place Boston by eight games.
