Yankees Take 3-2 ALCS Lead On Astros

The New York Yankees are a win away from the World Series.  They shut out the Houston Astros 5-0 in Game Five of the American League Championship Series in the Bronx.  

Masahiro Tanaka and Tommy Kahnle  combined on a four-hitter for New York, which has won three straight to take a three-games-to-two lead in the best-of-seven matchup.  

Tanaka struck out eight while allowing just three hits and a walk over seven innings for the win. 

 Gary Sanchez homered and drove in two for the Yankees, who are 6-and-0 at home this postseason. 

Dallas Keuchel also struck out eight, but allowed seven hits and four runs in four-and-two-thirds frames to take the loss.  

The series now shifts back to Houston for Game Six on Friday.
