Yankees prepare for Game 6 against Houston

Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

The Yankees will face the Houston Astros Friday in what could be a decisive Game 6 in the American League Championship Series.

The Bronx Bombers lead the series 3-2 after coming back from an 0-2 deficit in their second-straight playoff series.

But Friday they face Justin Verlander, who struck out 13 in a complete game win in Game 2, and they'll do it on the road.

So far this postseason, the Yanks have gone 6-0 at home but just 1-4 away. They've also scored far fewer runs and hit for a lower average. And their ERA is twice as high outside Yankee Stadium.
