Astros broke more records on their way to playoffs with Yankees [videos]

Beating the Tampa Rays in a grueling 5-game play-off, the Astros will face the New York Yankees who have also been breaking records.

The Yankees-Astros American League Champion Series will be the 5th postseason series between 100-win teams in the last three postseasons.
