Unexpected and disappointing are the only words to describe the Houston Astros’ ALCS opener Saturday night.

In a game where starting pitcher Zack Greinke’s performance was probably the biggest concern heading into it, it was the Astros’ bats that were the let-down in their 7-0 loss to the New York Yankees at Minute Maid Park.

Astros were like “deer in the headlights” facing Tanaka. Hope they do a better job tonight.
