Dallas Keuchel may not have been a lock to be regular contender for the Cy Young Award when he first came up with the Astros. But he has molded himself into one of the best left-handed pitchers in all of baseball.

He proved that fact on Friday and oh more fact: he owns the Yankees.

He is 4-0 with a 1.69 ERA in five career playoff games (four starts). He has only allowed two earned runs over 25 2/3 innings in playoff games in which he starts. In two playoff games against New York, he has pitched 13 scoreless innings.

To turn around a phrase used by so many Yankees fans: Hey Yankees, tip your hat and call the Keuchel your daddy.

Here are a few facts to back that up Keuchel’s greatness:

The best part about all of this is the fact that Keuchel will likely get one more shot against New York, so he can do this all over again.
