Looks like the Yankees will have to wait for one more meeting between the Rays and Astros to learn who they’ll face in Saturday’s AL Championship Series.

Thanks to a 4-1 victory over Houston on Tuesday night, Tampa Bay has forced a Game 5 in the ALDS.

Astros ace Justin Verlander had a rough go on the Tropicana Field mound, getting pulled in the fourth after giving up run number four.

The winner takes all deciding matchup happens Thursday in Houston.

How do you see Game 5 playing out? Who will emerge from the ALCS?
