Although he took a loss five days ago, Gray delivered his best outing of the season, and the Yankees are hoping to see more positive results Saturday when they continue a three-game series against the Cleveland Indians at Yankee Stadium.

The right-hander also was 1-1 and did not give up an earned run in two postseason starts against the Yankees past year.

"I never faced him", Andujar said. "I love our guys in the room, the way they go about it, the way they show up and the way they play and compete". I think he's really close to getting to that point where he can be a really good pitcher for us. "It's fun to be a part of that".

The Yankees outscored the Astros 14-5 in winning the last three games and had an nearly identical combined margin of victory (13-5) when they took three in a row from the two-time defending AL Central champions in the playoffs last October.

Gray has a 3.72 ERA in five starts with Romine this year.

Chapman (1-0) kept the game tied by fanning Kipnis and was awarded the win.

PHILLIES 3, NATIONALS 1: Rhys Hoskins hit a two-run homer, Vince Velasquez pitched five effective innings and Philadelphia snapped host Washington's six-game winning streak. He lasted six innings and gave up two hits, and just two of the four runs off him were earned.

The wage growth number seemed unlikely to alarm Wall Street, which has been anxious in recent months about inflation. The deceleration in wage growth was more surprising to us, especially given such signs of labor market tightness.

Several members of the Afghan security forces were also killed in the operation, according to the US Department of Defense. Nine journalists including AFP chief photographer Shah Marai were among the dead.

"I'm not helping my team", said Lindor. I'll become a better player from it. Bauer made a great pitch. Defense is doing a great job. "Really exciting for me to come through for my team there". We know we're up against (Indians starting pitcher Mike) Clevinger (Sunday). According to YES entering Saturday, Gray has an ERA of 2.64 in eight starts with Romine compared to a 6.07 with Sanchez in 11 starts.

Shortstop Didi Gregorius and right fielder Aaron Judge have led the Yankees' offense this year. Alonso led off with a single, Cleveland's first hit, and Rajai Davis pinch ran.

Lindor, as a parting thought, said, "We have another game Sunday and hopefully I can turn a double play". He said he's going to play tomorrow. "I just tried to get the job done; if I didn't get one I can drive, just pass the baton on to the next guy". He has won eight of his last nine decisions dating to August 21. The team's starters have an ERA of 3.44, a WHIP of 1.13 and a strikeouts-per-nine of 8.5. This will be his first start of the season.

TIGERS 3, ROYALS 2: Jordan Zimmermann allowed two hits in five scoreless innings, Nicholas Castellanos had three extra-base hits and Detroit won at Kansas City, Missouri. With Gary Sanchez hitting a solo shot in the bottom of the fifth, a 5-0 run lead made it all Yankees in this one, especially with CC Sabathia dealing on the bump. He received a no-decision. Yankees 4, Indians 1.

"The stuff is fine", Boone said before Friday's game. "I foresee him being in the rotation at least a couple of times through just based on where we are roster-wise and availability wise. Once we all start clicking, it's going to be a lot of fun".

As a unit, New York's pitching staff has given up 4.0 runs per game overall in 2018.
