He noted that with Paxton only pitching 2 1/3 innings and struggling, Boone had to go to his bullpen early, with eight relievers appearing for the Yankees. This causes difficulty going forward because now he has to count on five or six pitchers every day to do exceptionally well. 
The Yankees and Astros were at a 2-2 stand still on Sunday night until the bottom of the 11th inning when Carlos Correa hit a walk-off home run to deliver the Astros a win and even the series at one game apiece. 
After the game, many were on high alert over the possibility of tipping pitches, but the Yankees manager denied the talk saying, “We’re pretty vigilant on that stuff.” 
Samson starts out strong, declaring, “Don’t believe Aaron Boone, James Paxton was tipping his pitches.” Samson says something was going on, because when you see an offensive team like the Astros communicating to each other in the open, in real time, it’s all about tipping pitches and stealing signs. 
Any advantage for the Astros could mean the end of the Yankees World Series hopes, and Samson says Houston offense sure did seem pretty locked in during Paxton’s mound appearance.
