Yankees 2, Astros 1
W: Pineda, L: Keuchel, S: Miller
This game was supposed to be the one for the ages. Some people seemed to be more excited about Bregman being called up than Correa (I hope its not a racist thing). Personally, both call ups excited me. I am glad to see him succeed and have his opportunity, but I think it is a bit unfair to assume he is Altuve. He’s only played one game so far.
Great defensive plans in the game, both Correa and Bregman flashing some leader. Springer had the offensive highlight, a lead-off HR. It really felt like a good night was going to happen. Knoxbanedoodle seemed to be psychic on the night.
Totally bullshit hot take, granted, but it’s been my experience this year that leadoff bombs are often the chief highlights in otherwise punchless efforts. Hope that’s not the case tonight.
The Astros had their chances but came up short. Bregman remains hitless in the major leagues. Keuchel did a good job pitching, it is nice to see him have good outings, especially this time of the season. Otherwise this game was similar to the other 44 they’ve lost. 7 LOBs will make Astros fans sad.
