Yankees 2B Gleyber Torres entered the ALCS hot and didn't slow down in Game 1, registering five RBI via a double, HR and two-run single as the Yankees triumphed 7-0.

Yankees bring in flamethrower Aroldis Chapman? No sweat for Astros Springer and Altuve. The former drew a two-out BB, and the latter punched a slider deep to LCF to mercifully end the game before extra innings. (Both teams had already plowed through their bullpens.) Final: NYY 4, HOU 6.
