Hello all! @ByTheMinMLB curator Thomas Frost here. About 40 minutes away from first pitch but as ever I'll be giving you some match information first.

There will be a twist to the usual proceedings but I will get on to that in a bit. Firstly here's the match information.

Here's how the Yankees are faring so far this year:

Here's how the Astros are faring so far this year:

This is the rubber game of a 3 game set between the Astros and Yankees at Minute Maid Park. The Yankees took Game 1 on Friday after scoring 12 in the final 4 innings to win 13-4. The Astros took Game 2 on Saturday after scoring 4 in the 8th to come from behind to win 7-6.

Alrighty. That twist I alluded to? Well you've got me obviously but we've got someone who hasn't watched a baseball game ever helping with proceedings, in Mr Roddy Graham. Roddy, unlike me, likes to try new things and challenge himself on ByTheMin. So what could possibly go wrong eh?
