Takeaways from the Yankees 4-1 loss; Bombers may have a problem if Game Four is rained out; Studs and duds of Game Three; Reggie Jackson apologizes to Stanton

MLB: ALCS-Houston Astros at New York Yankees Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports | John Harper: The Yankees dropped Game Three to the Astros by a score of 4-1, but there are some things to take away from the game. For instance, Alex Rodriguez believes that Luis Severino could have been tipping his pitches. Plus, the Yankees may have a problem with Adam Ottavino. | Dan Martin: With the weather for ALCS Game Four looking a bit gloomy, the Yankees could face some problems. If rained out, they will face the potential situation of playing four games in four days. The Yankees have never had a reliever appear in three straight games this year. Meanwhile, the Astros can expect some length out of their starters, allowing them to be less impacted by the continuous play. | Brendan Kuty: Game Four had some studs and some duds. Luis Severino was not as sharp as we have seen in the past, but Gleyber Torres has continued his strong postseason. Gary Sanchez went hitless in his four at-bats, and Didi Gregorius left five runners on base. | Randy Miller: Former Yankees outfielder, Reggie Jackson, took a jab at current Yankees outfielder, Giancarlo Stanton. Jackson was on Jim Bowden’s radio show and had some choice words when talking about Stanton. Mr. October has since apologized and says his words were not said with intent.
