Game Thread: Spring Training Day 3. Mets @ Astros, Feb 25, 12:05 CST.

Synderggard vs. Verlander. Only Spring Training? Still a great show. Join the discussion

MLB: ALCS-Boston Red Sox at Houston Astros Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports

The Astros took two out of three this weekend, scoring five or more runs in all three games. A lot of players got a look this weekend, including a number of Minor Leaguers who were not even non-roster invitees.

Two who didn’t play; Alex Bregman and Jose Altuve, both nursing pre-season surgeries. Altuve will play today at DH.

The competition for fourth outfielder is looking hot. In two games Jake Marisnick hit .400 with a home run to lead off the Spring Training season against Max Scherzer. In his one game Tony Kemp was 2-2, with a walk, a double and a triple and two RBI.

Today’s game with the Mets features a premier pitching match up; Noah Syndergaard, vs. Justin Verlander, both pitching their first games of the Spring.

At the time of publication there are no lineups.
