Yankees vs Astros preview 4/9/19
The Yankees will look to bounce back tonight vs the Astros after a frustrating loss last night. The Yankees will look to Jonathan Loaisiga to try and quiet a potent Astros offense led by Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman and Carlos Correa. The Yankees are an even 5-5 heading into this one.
Player to watch:
The young starter will be put in the spotlight tonight vs an Astros offense that will pounce on you on even the smallest of mistakes. Loaisiga will be the man to watch tonight to see if he can go toe to toe with star pitcher Gerrit Cole and if he can keep the Yankees in the game long enough.
If this were a basketball game, this pitching matchup would be characterized as a “mismatch.” And that it is. Young starter Jonathan Loaisiga will square off vs all star Gerrit Cole. Cole definitely has the upper hand tonight behind the home crowd and will look to take advantage of what could be run support early.
