- I mean you have to-- who knows how this series is going to end. You have to say, there's something about this team. Down 0-2 to Cleveland after that epic loss in game 2. They cover to win that series. And this was about to be 3-1, and win this game. And now we're tied. There is a little mojo here.

- There certainly is, Kevin. We've been talking about it. It reminds me a little bit of the 1996 Yankees. You can't put your finger on it, but you know they'll never give up. They have great character, and they just keep coming back. Tonight was a perfect example of a 25 man roster win. Look, the luxury for Joe Girardi to roll out Headley, Holliday, Ellsbury to pinch run, it's an example of what kind of roster Brian Cashman has built here.

- What do we thinking if for game number five, Papi? Keuchel and Tanaka. Tanaka who's been brilliant at home, Keuchel who's been brilliant against the Yanks?

- That's going to be a fun game to watch. I might not show up tomorrow. I might sit down at home to watch the game, because it's going to be-- I mean you're going to be hitting the panic button.

- But you get paid to show up here.

- You are going back to Boston?

- Then I will come here. How come you never say, you remind me the 2004 Red Sox ball club? Always the 1996 Yankees.

- That's what it reminded me of.

- You wasn't even on the 1996 team.

- That's what it reminded me of.

- But you were there watching the 2004.

- Keith, what do you think? Tanaka and Keuchel?

- Look at it, Papi. I know it hurts.

- I'll say one thing, is that both teams haven't hit. Up to this point, when Judge sparked them, they only had two hits at that point. Astros only got three hits in the game. They've been struggling the whole series. Yankees got to feel a little injection of energy that we're coming around offensively. Houston goes home tonight, back to their hotel room, only three hits.

- 6, 5, 4, and 3 are the hits the Astros have had. You're right. That is not hitting. Frank?

- No more little sparks, Joe. That's a big spark. That was a 500 foot home run in center field. Aaron Judge stayed in center field, because your next at bat, you made a [INAUDIBLE] down. Your pull stroke was there because you stayed to center field on that last home run.

- Big man bomb.

- Almost back to back. This guy's incredible.

- I wonder what [INAUDIBLE] thinks, who [INAUDIBLE] thinks is going to win game five.

- [INAUDIBLE]!

- We'll find out. What a game. What a game.

[INTERPOSING VOICES]

What a game. What a series. We're tied at two. We will see you tomorrow for game number five, 1:00 Eastern.

- Enough with the ring, man.

- We'll see you tomorrow night.

- This is unbelievable.
