Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Houston Astros 5/13

Saturday afternoon baseball in the Bronx, it just doesn’t get better than this. This afternoon the New York Yankees and the Houston Astros will face off head-to-head in the third game of their four-game set this weekend in the Bronx. In the game the Yankees will send Luis Severino to the mound as they get another glimpse into the future while the Astros will counter with Mike Fiers. Another pair of young guns on the mound and another pair of high-powered offenses. This should be fun.

Severino pitched in the Yankees and Cubs marathon that lasted 18-innings last week and the Yankees righty pitched well. Severino pitched the first seven innings of the contest allowing just one run marking the fourth time in his last six starts that he has gone at least seven innings. Severino is currently sporting a 0.908 WHIP with 45 strikeouts and seven walks this season.

Fiers has been prone to giving up the home run ball thus far this season which is not a good sign for the Houston Astros entering this contest. Fiers has easily been the Astros worst pitcher thus far this season and has just one win to show for his efforts in 2017. The Yankees offense needs to jump on him early and often tonight.

The game will be played at 1:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on the YES Network, MLB Network and MLB TV. You can also follow along in your cars and on the radio by listening to John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN. Enjoy the game everyone and as always, Go Yankees!
