Covers Preview - The New York Yankees have been one of baseball's most dominant home teams over the past 20 years but they are on pace for their first losing season at Yankee Stadium since 1991. The Houston Astros have posted back-to-back wins in New York and can complete a three-game sweep in Thursday afternoon's series finale. The slumping Yankees have dropped seven of nine to fall to 29-31 at home and are five games back in the race for the American League's second wild card.
