Houston Astros  

The Astros fly into this evening’s matchup sporting a 35-21 record that ranks them 1st in the AL West. By the looks of it, Houston is dead-set on following up last year’s World Series championship with another highly successful year. However, considering that the Astros are 1-3 in their last 4, Houston will need a bit of a rebound in the coming weeks. To help pull one over the Yankees this evening, Houston will be sending Dallas Keuchel to the mound. Keuchel is 3-6 on the season with a 3.39 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP.

Players to Watch: Jose Altuve (4 HR, 29 RBI, .332 BA), George Springer (11 HR, 34 RBI, .287 BA), and Carlos Correa (8 HR, 36 RBI, .267 BA).

New York Yankees  

The Yankees are vying to get back on top of the AL East. Currently the Boston Red Sox lead the division and own a 2-game lead over the 34-17 Yanks. New York allowed Boston to find their way back to the top of the AL East by posting a 3-4 record in their last 7 games. To help chip away at the Red Sox’ lead, New York will be sending Luis Severino to pitch this evening. Severino is 7-1 on the season with a 2.28 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP.

Players to Watch: Aaron Judge (15 HR, 40 RBI, .288 BA), Giancarlo Stanton (11 HR, 28 RBI, .245 BA), and Didi Gregorius (11 HR, 34 RBI, .41 BA).
