8/19 Yankees Game Preview vs. Houston Astros

The New York Yankees are fresh off taking two out of three from the Tampa Bay Rays and look to keep their winning streak alive as they come home to Yankee Stadium to take on the Houston Astros. The Astros are in the middle of yet another losing season but should send some good pitchers to the mound this week. Tonight the Yankees will send Chris Capuano to the mound to face off with the Astros Brett Oberholtzer. The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET and can be seen on the MY9, MLB TV, and can be heard on the radio with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN.

Capuano is still searching for his first win in a Yankees uniform although he has pitched well since coming over to New York. The Yankees have only won one of his starts, his last, so New York looks to make it two in a row with Capuano on the mound tonight in the Bronx. The Yankees are also looking to win their third straight game overall and climb back into the AL East and Wild Card standings.

Oberholtzer is coming off a start in which he pitched at least seven innings for the third consecutive start. Oberholtzer has also pitched at least six innings in 11 straight starts while Houston has won five of Oberholtzer's last six starts and seven of his last 10 starts. Needless to say this may be a tough one for the Yankees offense. 

Go Yankees!!
