The Bombers rode a few timely hits and some sharp pitching from Nestor Cortes Jr., Chad Green and Jonathan Loaisiga to a tidy 4-0 victory in the opener of this series, and just two games now separate them from the All-Star break.
A strong close in their most villainous road city would be huge, but it’ll take some serious effort to lock things down again.
The Bombers will face two of the best pitchers in baseball over the next two days, though they’ll at least have the benefit of facing the Astros without Carlos Correa and (most likely) Alex Bregman.

Yankees vs Astros Pitching Matchup
Did somebody say revenge? Gerrit Cole (8-4, 2.91) starts against the Astros for the first time since he left the team wearing a Boras Corp hat after the 2019 postseason. On the bump for the home team is Zack Greinke (8-2, 3.64 ERA), in the midst of another sterling season in a Hall of Fame career.
Yankees Starting Lineup
Watch this space! But maybe let’s just run back the same lineup from yesterday? That worked.
Yankees vs Astros Prediction Today
Are things really going to go well for the 2021 Yankees two days in a row? This is the most hostile place imaginable for Cole to be battling back spider tack nonsense. If he can put up even a solid line, we’ll be proud, but this feels like a 5-2 loss.
