Yankees Seeking Revenge Against Astros

Dallas Keuchel Masahiro Tanaka

The New York Yankees and Houston Astros are very familiar with each other, and tonight’s Opening Day showdown features a pair of hurlers who recently faced off in the American League Wild Card Game. Dallas Keuchel’s Astros got the better of Masahiro Tanaka’s Yankees in that game, which means the Yanks will have plenty of motivation to avenge that loss.

Shark Bites
  • The Astros are 3-0 SU in their last three games against the Yankees.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 13 of the Astros' last 17 games against the Yankees.
  • Due to inclement weather, this game was originally scheduled for Monday.

Fresh off a Cy Young season, Keuchel became Houston’s first 20-game winner in over a decade in 2015. The 28-year-old tossed six scoreless innings to lead the ‘Stros past the Bronx Bombers last October. Keuchel had 22 scoreless frames in three starts against the Yankees last year, including the playoff outing.

Tanaka is coming off a rocky spring training that saw him post an ugly 7.36 ERA in four starts. The Japan native had offseason surgery to remove a bone spur in his right elbow.

Keep an eye out for Astros shortstop Carlos Correa in this one. Correa, who was considered an MVP candidate, hit .378 with four home runs in 18 spring training games.
