New York Yankees vs. Houston Astros History

The rivalry between the Houston Astros and the New York Yankees had its beginnings when the Houston Astros were moved to the American League in 2013. The Astros have won all four postseason series played between the two teams since then. While they quickly stirred up competition, the Astros’ rivalry with the Yankees truly began in 2017, after the American League Championship Series, which the Astros won. Just after the Astros once more beat the Yankees in the 2019 American League Championship Series, the Astros were embroiled in a sign-stealing scandal, after evidence of cheating during the 2017 Series was uncovered among other things. Many Yankees fans blamed their defeat in the 2017 series on the cheating that had occurred, with some going as far to say that their loss in the 2019 series was also due to cheating by the Astros.

In 2015, the Houston Astros dealt a stinging defeat to the Yankees in the American League Wild Card Game, which the Astros won three to nothing and sent the Yankees packing.

In both 2003 and in 2022, the Houston Astros pitched no-hitters against the New York Yankees. The Astros are the only team to have done this to the Yankees twice.

The Astros and Yankees have met at the American League Championship three times since their arrival to the American League in 2013: first in 2017, then in 2019 and again in 2022. Since 2015, the Houston Astros have won 711 games, the most by an American League team. The Yankees have the second most victories, at 689 wins.

The year 2022 saw the rivalry soar to new heights. Brian Cashman, the General Manager for the New York Yankees, cast aspersions on the Houston Astros in response to complaints about the World Series drought the Yankees have suffered since 2009. “Well, I think we actually did it the right way… the only thing that derailed us was a cheating circumstance that threw us off,” he told The Athletic.

Salt was rubbed in the wounds of Yankees fans when the “We Want Houston” meme went viral. Video of Yankee fans chanting “we want Houston” following the Yankees’ victory over the Cleveland Guardians in the American League Division Series started making the rounds after the Yankees failed to score a single win against the Astros during their 2022 series.

All of these factors has led to the rivalry between the two teams becoming particularly ferocious. After heating up before the 2022 series, animosity between the teams is at an all-time high. Many Astros fans have considered the rivalry to be one-sided for some time, and the Astros’ sweeping of the Yankees in 2022 has only fueled the debate.

Where Do the New York Yankees and the Houston Astros Play?

The Yankees play at the Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York. With construction costs weighing in at over $2.4 billion, the venue, which opened to the public in 2009, is one of the most expensive stadiums ever built.

The Astros play at the Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas. Minute Maid Park has a retractable roof and a natural grass playing field, as well as being one of the most hitter-friendly parks in the MLB. Learn more about Minute Maid Park.
