Jose Urquidy gets his second tune up of the Spring

MLB: Houston Astros at Washington Nationals Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The Astros pulled out a 4-4 tie with the Mets yesterday, with three runs in the eighth, but the bats continue to look anemic in what is still early Spring Training. The likely opening day Astros starters combined for 3 for 17, although Myles Straw remains an offensive bright spot, getting another hit in three at bats, maintaining a .462 batting average for the Spring.

For the first time all Spring Straw will appear in the lineup somewhere other than lead-off, batting eighth, with Carlos Correa getting the honor of starting off tonight’s game.

Here’s the Astros lineup.

Carlos Correa.............SS

Kyle Tucker.................RF

Jose Altuve................2B

Michael Brantley.......LF

Yuli Gurriel................1B

Aledmys Diaz...........3B

Lorenzo Quintana....C

Myles Straw.............CF

Alex De Goti............DH
