AL Wild Card- Astros vs Yankees: Game Thread

The playoffs start tonight with the American League Wild Card game. The New York Yankees play host to the Houston Astros. Masahiro Tanaka will start for the Yankees. His mound opponent will be Cy Young candidate Dallas Keuchel. Carlos Gomez hasn't played much for the Astros recently due to some nagging injuries but will start the game tonight.
