New York Yankees
Our prediction yesterday was correct; Jordan Montgomery did get the best of Francis Martes but the New York bullpen that had been so strong let the Yankees down again and Houston completed a comeback to win, 7-6.
After Houston got a 2-0 lead in the fifth inning, New York broke through with five runs in the sixth, highlighted by Didi Gregorious’ grand slam.
Clint Frazier added a solo shot in the seventh in his big league debut. He had two hits and scored twice out of the ninth spot in the Yankees’ lineup.
Dellin Betances started the eighth with a 6-3 lead and struck out the first batter he faced. Then Jose Altuve walked, stole second, stole third and scored on an RBI groundout. Evan Gattis homered to make it 6-5 and Betances walked the next two and gave way to Aroldis Chapman who gave up a two-run double to Yuli Gurriel.
Ken Giles notched his 19th save in the ninth.
Mike Fiers starts against Luis Severino on Sunday. The Astros are barely favorites at home, which is a major testament to how Severino has been throwing the ball all season.
Most recently though, he struck out a dozen in seven innings of one-run ball against the White Sox. It will be worthwhile to watch and see if he can tame the Houston offense.
Fiers has been pitching quite well himself of late, though. His ERA was 5.75 in the middle of May and dropped below 4.00 about 10 days ago in Oakland – to 3.81.

Free New York Yankees vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction: Severino won’t hold Houston down.
But neither will Fiers, New York. Severino could be good for four, five innings but Houston will get to him eventually. The Yanks should manage Fiers just fine.
