Girardi hopes off day doesn't slow Yanks' roll

Nemesis no more: Yankees finally conquer Dallas Keuchel

The Astros' ace has a history of owning New York in the postseason, but Game 5 saw him surrender four runs in less than five innings, leaving Houston dangling by a thread in the ALCS.

Ese segundo jonrón de Javy Báez es el número 32 por un pelotero de 25 años de edad o menos esta postemporada, lo cual es una nueva marca histórica. La marca anterior era de 28, establecida en la postemporada 2015. Al momento de redactar estas líneas, los 5 cuadrangulares conectados en los partidos de hoy han sido todos por jugadores de 25 años de edad o menos: Gary Sánchez, Willson Contreras, Báez y Cody Bellinger.

Aaron Judge said the Yankees are feeling confident heading into Game 6 of the ALCS -- particularly after defeating nemesis Dallas Keuchel in Game 5. "He doesn't make mistakes," said Judge. "If he ever gets into a groove, man, he's unhittable. So for us, it was just about -- just keep having quality at-bats, and kind of feed off this momentum into Houston."

After going 0-for-11 in the first three games of the ALCS, Gary Sanchez has homered and driven in five runs over the Yankees' past two victories. Teammate Aaron Judge -- who himself homered twice and drove in six runs across Games 3, 4 and 5 in the Bronx -- called Sanchez's breakout "huge for us." Said Judge: "He's the main guy in our lineup. He's always in the middle of the order. And when you've got guys in the middle of the order producing, usually everybody else kind of feeds off that. Hitting is contagious. So when Gary goes up there and does his thing, it leads into Didi [Gregorius], it leads into [Starlin] Castro, it leads into [Aaron] Hicks. It's been huge having Gary doing what he's been doing the past couple days."

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

This is the Yankees' mentality, even up 3-2 over the Astros. Aaron Judge was asked what he thought of the Yankees' advantage and Judge said, "It's great, but we are not done."
