The Astros and Yankees play Game 3 of the ALCS today. Here is a preview of the game. Check back during the game for inning by inning updates:

When: 7 p.m.

Where: Yankee Stadium.

TV: Fox Sports1.

Streaming: Fox Sports Go.

Pitching matchup: Charlie Morton vs. C.C. Sabathia.

Series: Astros lead 2-0.

The breakdown: The Astros took the first two games at Minute Maid with fantastic pitching performances from Dallas Keuchel and Justin Verlander. Saturday's dramatic victory was one for the ages, with Jose Altuve dashing home in the ninth on a gusty play. Today's game features a pair of 14-game winners in Charlie Morton of the Astros and veteran C.C. Sabathia for the Yankees. Morton will likely have a short leash, because the Astros can take a stranglehold on the series if they can get by this one. But don't count out the Yankees. They had chances to win both games at Minute Maid and rallied from down 0-2 to beat a terrific Indians team in the first round.

As Astros fans play the waiting game to see where Carlos Correa will sign his next deal, we debate whether the Astros could offer Correa a front-loaded deal to provide the shortstop the payday he's looking for while keeping Houston flexible for the future.
