This is the first time the Houston Astros will play in Yankee Stadium with fans in attendance since the whole cheating scandal came to light. So we should expect this series to be a little chippy early on. The Yanks are coming off a sweep of the Detroit Tigers over the weekend. New York is back to .500 at 14-14, only 2.5 games back in the AL East. The bats are starting to come to life, particularly Aaron Judge, who was 5-for-12 with 2 HRs and 8 RBI against Detroit.
Houston has won three straight series but have failed to complete the sweep in the final game in each of them. The Astros are being carried offensively less by Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman, and more by Michael Brantley and Yuli Gurriel. The Astros offense enters Tuesday top 10 in a few offensive categories, including wOBA, AVG and SLG.
