Having won three consecutive games to take a 3-2 lead in the American League Championship Series, the Yankees are just one win away from their first Fall Classic since 2009. There are just a few obstacles, of course, Yasmani Grandal Authentic Jersey starting with the need to win at least one game in Houston. The Yanks were only 40-41 on the road this year, and they got themselves in a 2-0 hole in the first place by losing Games 1 and 2 at Minute Maid Park.

ALCS Game 6: Friday, 8 p.m. ET/7 CT on FS1

But more importantly, the obstacle is the man who will be taking the mound in Friday night's Game 6 of the ALCS presented by Camping World. The Astros will have Justin Verlander, who has exceeded all expectations Yimi Garcia Authentic Jersey since being acquired from Detroit in August, and who completely shut down the Yankees in a 13-strikeout complete game performance in Game 2.

Dress for ALCS: Yankees gear | Astros gear

The Yankees haven't lost since. If they want to avoid Game 7, they'll have to do better against Verlander on Friday. But what's made Verlander so dominant? More importantly, what, if anything, can the Yanks do to beat him? That's the most important question hanging over Game 6, and it just may be what determines who ends up representing the AL in the World Series presented by YouTube TV.To begin with, Cody Bellinger Authentic Jersey the Yanks saw something like "peak Verlander" in Game 2, as he averaged 96.1 mph on his 71 four-seam fastballs. That's more than just an impressive number; it's actually tied with three other starts for his second fastest four-seam velocity of the past three seasons, behind a 96.4-mph average on July 19. Of those five fastest starts of the past three years, three have come in his eight games as an Astro, including his Houston debut on Sept. 5 and his AL Division Series start against the Red Sox.

While his Astros average (95.5 mph, including the postseason) is about the same as his 2017 Tigers velocity (93.3 mph), this is the continuation of a larger trend for Verlander. You might remember that many Clayton Kershaw Authentic Jersey had written him off after a disappointing 2014 season that saw him put up a 4.54 ERA, striking out just 159 in 206 innings as he struggled to overcome the effects of offseason core surgery. Never fully healthy, his fastball averaged just 92.8 mph that season.

The next year, it was 93.4 mph, then 94.1 in 2016 and 95.3 mph this year. As you can see, the Houston version of Verlander is operating at peak velocity, and especially so in October. As a recent study at FanGraphs found, there was a 5-mph range between his average and maximum fastball velocities during the regular season, but just a 1.8-mph gap in the postseason. If Verlander has an "extra gear," he's always in it right now.
