Astros now trailing Yankees in ALCS, need 9th Verlander win

HOUSTON (AP) Justin Verlander agreed to that last-second trade to the Houston Astros with hopes of another World Series, and has since won all eight games he has pitched.

Eight is not enough. The Astros have to win Verlander's ninth game - or their season will end short of that goal.

"Obviously. I know this is one of the main reasons I was brought here," Verlander said Thursday. "This is why I'm here."
