The lineup card read like an Opening Day roster for the Astros with Jose Altuve, George Springer and Carlos Correa hitting at the top. The de facto Opening Day lineup faced a familiar face in former Houston prospect Mike Foltynewicz.

The Astros were able to get one run on two hits and one walk off Foltynewicz in  3 2/3 innings.

The Astros starter Mike Fiers struggled as he extending his innings in Spring Training. Fiers went 4 2/3 innings allowing six earned runs on eight hits -- including a four-run fifth inning.

Kevin Chapman and Will Harris combined for 2 1/3 innings of scoreless relief.

The Astros offense came alive after Foltynewicz's departure, scoring five runs on Manny Banuelos. Carlos Correa opened the scoring with a two-run home run, his third of the spring.

Tyler White and Jose Altuve (two RBI) each had an RBI single in the sixth inning. A.J. Reed and White added two more runs in the seven with a sacrifice fly and single respectively.

Brad Peacock finished off the game giving up one run on two hits over two innings.
