The Houston Astros and New York Yankees face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown in the Bronx at Yankee Stadium. The Astros have won two of the first three games of this series, and if it wasn’t for a bad ninth inning in Game 1, the Astros would have won all three.

The Astros come into this game with a 45-26 record overall and on Saturday they had a combined no-hitter against the Yankees. The Astros pitching has been the strength all season and they currently giving up 3.94 runs per game which is 3rd best in the league. The offense hasn’t lived up to the expectations but this is still one of the best teams in baseball. Jose Altuve is having a big season hitting 14 home runs and driving in 25 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Yankees who are the best teams in baseball, but their bats have had some issues. The Yankees offense has been so strong this season, so the offense struggling on Saturday was a bit shocking. The Yankees are offense is averaging 5.01 runs per game while their pitching staff is giving up 3.05 runs per game. Aaron Judge has hit 27 home runs and driven in 53 RBIs.

On the mound for the Astros will be Jose Urquidy who sits with a 6-3 record and an ERA of 4.68. In his last start against the Mets, he went six innings giving up four hits and one run.

The Astros are 7-0 in their last seven games on Sunday. The under is 4-0 in Cortes Jr last four starts on Sunday. The under is 8-1-1 in Yankees last 10 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of greater than .600.

The Yankees were no hit on Saturday, and although I don’t think that happens here, the Yankees are still going to have major issues scoring here. Urquidy is coming off a game where they gave up only one run, and the Yankees won’t score more than that here off of him. Back the Astros to secure the victory.
