How to Watch Yankees-Astros Baseball American League Championship Series Game 2 Live Stream Online

The American League Championship series continues Saturday afternoon in Houston, as the New York Yankees take on the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park.

Justin Verlander gets the ball for the homestanding Astros in a pivotal Game 2. The former Detroit Tigers ace has been absolutely brilliant since joining Houston, pitching to a sparkling ERA of 1.06 in five regular season starts for the Astros following the trade deadline. He didn’t fare quite as well against Boston in the ALDS, giving up two runs over six innings in his Game 1 start against the Red Sox. But it was good enough to get the job done.

Luis Severino takes the hill for the Yankees on Saturday afternoon. His postseason got off to a rocky start, as he was chased in the first inning by the Twins in the Wild Card game. But he came back with a good effort against Cleveland — propelling New York to a season-saving Game 4 ALDS win. For the first time in his last three starts, Severino will pitch without facing the pressure of knowing the Yankees’ season will be over if they lose.

First pitch is at 4:08 p.m. ET. The game will air on Fox Sports 1. Joe Buck and John Smoltz have the call. The action can be streamed free with a cable subscription on pc, cell phone, or tablet via Fox Sports Go — which can be downloaded via the iTunes store, and the Google Play store.
