NEW YORK -- After saving their season with strong pitching on Friday, the New York Yankees will hope to push the American League Championship Series as far as it can go by winning a bullpen battle in Game 6 on Saturday.

The Houston Astros still hold a 3-2 series edge as they head home for the rest of the best-of-seven set. Game 7, if necessary, would be played Sunday.

Both teams will save their ace starting pitchers -- New York's Luis Severino and Houston's Gerrit Cole -- to pitch Game 7 on full rest. That leaves the Yankees and Astros to trot out a string of relievers in Game 6.
