NEW YORK (AP) — Cristian Javier and Houston’s bullpen combined on a three-hitter, Chas McCormick followed a dropped flyball with an early two-run homer and the Astros beat Gerrit Cole and the New York Yankees 5-0 to take a 3-0 AL Championship Series lead.

Some Yankees fans, already angry after two losses in Houston, booed star slugger Aaron Judge after a pair of strikeouts.

Judge wasn’t the only one Yankee fans jeered

Yankee fans  jeered manager Aaron Boone during pregame introductions. The 106-win Astros, trying for their second straight AL pennant, improved to 6-0 this postseason.
