No matter the opponent, Severino keeps dealing. He stifled the Astros once again Wednesday night in the Bronx, striking out 11 in seven innings in helping the Yankees win, 5-3, and take the rubber game of the series. Severino, who allowed two runs on four hits and a walk, is tied for the American League lead with eight wins and has a 2.31 ERA through 12 starts. The Yankees (35-17) are 11-1 when Severino starts. He was dominant with his slider all night, with eight of his strikeouts coming with the slider in the high 80s and looked unhittable through three innings with seven strikeouts before Jose Altuve singled with two outs in the fourth.
