The Astros haven't lost once in the 2022 postseason, and their latest was a three-hit shutout. Cristian Javier put the work in over 5 and 1/3 innings, only allowing one of those hits, and three walks. 

As for the Yankees offense, what can be said? No, really: there's not much to say. Slugger Aaron Judge went 0-for-4 in game 3, and has only had one hit in this entire series.

Houston's Game 4 pitcher is Lance McCullers Jr., who closed their pennant-winner in 2017. He contributed six of the scoreless innings against the Mariners in that epic 18-inning ALDS ender, but his play was delayed after getting hit on the elbow after that win. 

New York's turning to "Nasty" Nestor Cortes again, after he saved the day against the Guardians. 

Here are the lineups for tonight's game:

Astros: 1 Altuve. Jose 2B, 2 Peña, Jeremy SS, 3 Alvarez. Yordan LF, 4 Bregman, Alex 3B, 5 Tucker, Kyle RF, 6 Gurriel Yuli 1B, 7 Mancini, Trey DH, 8 McCormick, Chas CF, 9 Maldonado Martín C.

Yankees: 1 Bader. Harrison CF, 2 Judge, Aaron RF, 3 Rizzo, Anthony 1B, 4 Stanton, Giancarlo DH, 5 Torres, Gleyber 2B, 6 Donaldson. Josh 3B, 7 Cabrera. Oswaldo LE, & Kiner-Falefa. Isiah SS, 9 Trevino C.

How to watch Astros vs Yankees live streams in the US

Finding Astros vs Yankees live streams online is easy, as it's on TBS, and not locked in some regional sports networks. Our top pick for how to watch Astros vs Yankees is with Sling TV's Blue pack. You probably want to upgrade to Sling Blue & Orange, as the latter gets you ESPN, while Blue gets you and Fox (provided you have a local affiliate), FS1 and TBS. This is part of why Sling is the best cable TV alternatives.

The $70 per month YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV and DirecTV Stream all have the above channels as well, but Sling Orange + Blue is only $50. That affordability ensured its spot on our best streaming service list.
