Today's Lineups

Brett Gardner - LF George Springer - CF
Aaron Judge - RF Josh Reddick - RF
Didi Gregorius - SS Jose Altuve - 2B
Gary Sanchez - C Carlos Correa - SS
Greg Bird - 1B Marwin Gonzalez - LF
Starlin Castro - 2B Yulieski Gurriel - 1B
Aaron Hicks - CF Carlos Beltran - DH
Todd Frazier - 3B Alex Bregman - 3B
Chase Headley - DH Brian McCann - C
Luis Severino - RHP Justin Verlander - RHP

The Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch made no changes to his lineup from game one to game two. The only change that maybe should have happen was inserting Cameron Maybin, who is 1-for-6 with a home run off Luis Severino. The Astros insert Maybin in game three if Evan Gattis catches Charlie Morton. Marwin Gonzalez could move to first base, Yuli Gurriel to DH, and Maybin to left.

The biggest change for the Yankees is inserting Chase Headly into the lineup at designated hitter. Headly is 6-for-15 with a three extra-base hits off Saturday's starter for the Astros, Justin Verlander.
