Sonny Gray allowed two runs - one earned - on one hit and two walks in 5.0 innings as the New York Yankees defeated the Houston Astros 6-4 on Tuesday. Gray struck out four, ending the game with a 1.80 ERA and 0.60 WHIP on the season.
Making his first start in 12 days, Gray was far more effective than his brief and losing outing against the Indians in Game 1 of the ALDS. The in-season acquisition departed this one with two on and the game still scoreless, with both runners later crossing the plate. The next few days will determine whether this is his final appearance of the year, though he'll factor greatly in the Yankees' plans for 2018.
Gray will start Game 4 of the ALCS against the Astros on Tuesday.
