Cristian Javier will take the mound for this game who has been pretty solid lately as a starter and hasn't allowed a single run in his last 4 starts and has dominated the Yankees in his career. Gerrit Cole will start for the Yanks who has also been solid this season and domimnated the Astros the last time he faced them. The Astros got a shot of luck with Bregman's home run in Game 2 and they have struggled on the road vs Yankees so I'll take the Yankees to win in Game 3.
