The Yankees will try to figure things out in game number 2 of their 3 game set with the Astros on Wednesday night.
New York fell in the season opener after blowing a 2-0 lead, eventually falling 5-3 to the Astros and Dallas Keuchel.
The Yankees offense knew what was in store when Dallas Keuchel took the mound for Houston. The last time they took the field was in the AL Wild Card Game last season and they saw what he was capable of. In this one, cold temps didn’t help out anyone’s cause, as Keuchel and the Astros pen combined for a 4 hitter.
New York opened up a 2-0, but with game tied 2-2 in the 8th, reliever Dellin Betances opened the flood gates with a throwing error, that eventually resulted in 3 Astros runs.
New York will go with RH Michael Pineda on Wednesday, who is coming off a career high win season as he finished with 12. The ERA wasn’t where he necessarily wanted it to be, but with him and Tanaka atop the rotation this season, the pressure is certainly on for him to perform.
Dating back to last season, the Astros have simply had the Yankees number. Houston has won 4 straight games, one of which includes the AL Wild Card Game that saw them shut New York down on the road in a 3-0 win. The Astros used their pitching and timely hitting to spoil the Home Opener for the Yankees with a 5-3 win in the Bronx.
The Astros rotation is one of the best in baseball and they’ll send it from one ace in Keuchel to another potential ace in RH Collin McHugh. The RH was absolutely lights out last season, finishing the 2nd half with a 10-2 record with an ERA of only 3.11.
McHugh had a lot of success against these Yankees last season as well. The RH finished with a 2-0 record, adding just a 1.88 ERA in those 2 meetings.
