Tickets to tonight’s Yankees home game, first of the ALCS series versus the Houston Astros, may be a bit more affordable than fans anticipated.

NY Daily News reports that according to TicketIQ.com, prices are down 38% since the Yankees lost the first two games of the series at Minute Maid Park. According to their site, TicketIQ is a “source of in-depth ticket market analysis and intelligence on teams, tours and events in your local market”.

On Friday, the cheapest ticket available for Game 3 on TicketIQ was $145. With the game just a few hours away at 8:00 PM, that price has fallen to $88. On TicketNetwork, tickets can be found for as low as $67 and on TicketClub, $73. From Ticketmaster, the primary seller, the lowest-priced seats go for $143.

The decline has made for ticket prices that more closely align to when the Yankees were last in the American League Championship Series. The get-in price for the 2010 ALCS Game 3 vs. Texas was $104, and for the 2012 ALCS Game 2 vs. Detroit was $73.

“With the price drop, the Yankees are actually now the cheapest ticket in either the ALCS or NLCS,” said Ralph Garcia of TicketIQ. “As a comparison to New York’s other teams, the cheapest secondary market tickets to see the 1-and-5 New York Giants take on the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday are $115, while the Knicks’ home opener this Saturday versus Detroit starts at $132.”

Ticket IQ also found that the average ticket price for the regular season was $113. Based on current market trends, the secondary site projects that the lowest price for home games if the Yankees reach the World Series would be $728.
