The Houston Astros and manager A.J. Hinch will go down swinging without making any major changes to the lineup. Hinch will again roll out Josh Reddick at the top of the lineup and Carlos Beltran at designated hitter.

The Astros have the same lineup as Game Four with arguably the best six batters against a right-handed pitcher in the top six spots.

The Yankees push Gary Sanchez back to catcher and put Chase Headley back to designated hitter. Headley has one home run and eight strikeouts in his career against Keuchel.
