Though the MLB season technically opened Sunday night, as the Cardinals beat the Cubs because Chicago sent down Kris Bryant, the Astros will open their season Monday evening in a nationally-televised contest. It will also be the debut of the Astros new TV network for the regular season.

ESPN will show Monday's 6:10 p.m. game between the Astros and Indians as part of a triple-header. The game will also be broadcast on Root Sports. Fans of radio broadcasts can listen to the game on 790 AM in Houston or KLAT 1010.

Root Sports is the new home for Astros games and the new regional sports network will air all 162 of Houston's games this season. The station already aired both exhibition games from Minute Maid Park last weekend and will feature last year's announcing crew of Bill Brown, Alan Ashby and Geoff Blum.

Games on ESPN can be streamed at WatchESPN.com or with the Watch ESPN app. Fans who live outside the blackout restrictions in Texas can watch using MLB.TV or through the MLB At Bat app.

Dallas Keuchel will pitch for Houston while reigning American League Cy Young winner Corey Kluber will pitch for Cleveland.

The Astros will be off on Tuesday before returning to action against Cleveland on Wednesday. Here's the rest of the series schedule.

Wednesday

7:10 p.m. - HOU's Scott Feldman vs. CLE's Carlos Carrasco

Thursday

1:10 p.m. - HOU's Asher Wojciechowski vs. CLE's Trevor Bauer
