The Astros bullpen has handled their business for the most part. In Game 1, Bryan Abreu, a new face to the bullpen, and Ryan Pressly, a historically dependable arm, each gave up two runs extending the Yankees lead over the Houston Astros 7-0 in a game one loss. Other than these two innings the Astros bullpen when called upon has done a great job. Josh James has done an amazing job coming in to salvage innings, limit damage, or get the job done.
Joe Smith has thrown 3 1/3 innings and given up zero hits, along with zero runs. Will Harris has been phenomenal, also known by his alias Will Smith. Along with flame-throwing Roberto Osuna, the Houston Astros bullpen has come through.
"Pitching lines for Astros relief pitchers. Will Harris, 3.2 IP, 0 Runs, 2 Hits, 5 Ks and an astounding goatee Josh James, 3 IP, 0 Runs, 3 Hits (ALDS), 6 Ks (3 in one inning ALCS), 1 Win Roberto Osuna, 4 1/2 IP, 1 Run, 2 Hits, 6 Ks, 1 Hold"
These numbers would tell me as long as the Astros starters can hold the line into the 7th inning, this bullpen is locked in and can have the upper hand against a stellar Yankees bullpen.
