The matchup that matters most: Bauer versus Aaron Judge. In fact, the New York Yankees lead the majors in home runs with 241. Goldschmidt hit a high curveball over the fence for a three-run homer in the first and singled to start a three-run rally in the eighth.

Green and Robertson combined for three walks Tuesday, which could've led to trouble.

"I was about to say it's incredible", James said, "But I want to come back and do another video when you all got like a 40-game winning streak". The Twins lost 103 games previous year.

Houston and Chicago actually had a nice rivalry in the old NL Central, but they never met in the Postseason. None of their key players are free agents this offseason. Game 1 is scheduled for Thursday night in Cleveland, with the first pitch around 7:30 p.m. And with Trevor Bauer and Corey Kluber getting the chance for two starts each, they might not even be that needed, especially for the games in Progressive Field.
