The Houston Astros live to fight another day. Behind a gem from Dallas Keuchel on three days' rest, the Astros blanked the New York Yankees, 3-0, to win the American League Wild Card Game.

Keuchel silenced the Yankees through six frames, and the bullpen followed with three hitless innings. While Masahiro Tanaka avoided major damage, home runs from Colby Rasmus and Carlos Gomez proved enough.

The victory marks Houston's first playoff win since 2005, when it reached its only World Series in franchise history. The club will now travel to Kansas City to face the Royals in the ALDS, which commences on Thursday. 

 

FINAL: Astros 3 - 0 Yankees

W: Dallas Keuchel (6 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 7 K)

L: Masahiro Tanaka (5 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, 2 HR)

HRs: Colby Rasmus (1), Carlos Gomez (1)
