8/20 Yankees Game Preview vs. Houston Astros

The New York Yankees and the Houston Astros continue their three game set tonight at Yankee Stadium in the middle game of a three game set at Yankee Stadium. Tonight the Yankees will send Michael Pineda to the mound to face off with the Astros Scott Feldman. The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network, MLB TV, and can be heard on the radio with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN.

Pineda is making his second start this month after spending months on the disabled list with a teres major strain in his shoulder. Pineda pitched well last time out against the Baltimore Orioles but the Yankees lost the game after a bullpen meltdown. Pineda is likely to throw 90 pitches or so tonight but may be pushed to 100 if necessary.

Feldman has allowed five earned runs in his last three starts before his last start in Boston this season. Boston roughed up Feldman for seven runs and nine hits on Thursday. The Astros are 8-14  in his 22 starts this season so hopefully the Yankees make it 8-15. 

Go Yankees!!
