Dallas Keuchel threw six innings without an earned run to his name and the Astros handed the Yankees their 11th loss of the season with a 3-2 win.
Keuchel struck out nine and allowed on unearned run when Jacoby Ellsbury contacted Brian McCann’s glove behind the plate with a swing in the fifth inning.
The catcher’s interference with the bases loaded brought home New York’s only run until the ninth.
That’s when things got interesting, when Chris Devenski came out after two shutout innings and Ken Giles came on.
New York strung together two hits and a walk but Jake Marisnick threw out Ellsbury at the plate to end the game on Gary Sanchez’s single.

Now New York sends Jordan Montgomery back to the mound after beating the Chicago Cubs last weekend. He’s a home underdog to Lance McCullers.
Monty has been unusually consistent for a rookie, going either five or six innings and giving up either two or three runs in all of his starts (with the exception of 4.2 innings vs. Tampa Bay in his debut).
McCullers’ normal outing is a bit better because he’s shown the ability to shutdown an offense. He’s also given up five a couple of times this season but his WHIP and ERA are still slightly better than Montgomery’s.
He can also throw the ball past a hitter. McCullers has 50 Ks through 42 innings.

I’m looking forward to another really competitive game between two teams playing complete baseball in the early going. I don’t have a strong sense about the outcome but I lean ever so slightly toward the home team.
