Can the Astros and the Cubs pull games out of the fire today? Our predictions. . .

MLB: ALDS-Houston Astros Workouts

Good morning everyone and welcome to the Minor League Ball 2017 MLB Post-Season prediction and discussion thread for Wednesday, October 18th, 2017.

Yesterday we suggested that the New York Yankees would defeat the Houston Astros 5-2 and that the Los Angeles Dodgers would beat the Chicago Cubs 4-2. The actual results were Yankees 6, Astros 4, and Dodgers 6, Cubs 1. Both game result predictions were correct, bringing our prediction record this year to 15-9.

Two more games today, with the Astros and Dallas Keuchel trying to stave off the Yankees and Masahiro Tanaka, while Alex Wood and the Dodgers try to take down Jake Arrieta and the Cubs.

I’ll take Keuchel in this one, the Astros with a 4-0 triumph over the Yankees, and Arrieta being the hero for the Cubs, with a 3-1 win over the Los Angelinos.

What say you?
