It’s always fun to beat the Yankees. This is their first trip to Minute Maid this year and considering the warm hospitality that the Astros have received when they visited the Bronx, the Yankees are sure to receive a warm welcome here in H-Town.

Here’s the lineup. The Yankees send the Cuban Nestor Cortes to the mound in his second start this year and only the fourth of his career. He has 29 strikeouts in only 21 innings this year and a 1.29 ERA. His career ERA in 100.0 innings is 5.58.
Jake Odorizzi takes the mound for the Stros in his 10th start of the year.
No Correa tonight.
