Astros Martes Could be Making Last MLB Start

The New York Yankees and the Houston Astros battle at Minute Maid Park on Saturday night. The Astros are still playing well winning seven of their last 10 games. The Yankees have fell out of a tie for first with Boston. They are 1.5 games back after playing .500 ball over their last 10 games.

Oddsmakers opened the Astros as -137-moneyline favorites versus the Yankees, while the game’s total opened at 9.5. The line shows the Astros as -141-moneyline favorites and the total has dropped to 9.

The Yankees are in the midst of 16 straight games without an off-day. The stretch that will conclude on July 6. Skipper Joe Girardi is working hard to juggle his lineup so that his most effective players can contribute without burning out during this long stretch.

Yankees have Edge on the Hill

Left hander Jordan Montgomery will take the mound for the Yankees to start this game. Montgomery is 6-4 this season with a 3.53 ERA. Montgomery finished 4-0 with a 2.59 ERA over his five starts in June. In his only appearance against the Astros, Montgomery allowed four runs on eight hits. He had only one walk with seven strikeouts over six innings in a 5-1 loss on May 12.

Montgomery’s opponent in this one will be Francis Martes. The Astros right hander has a 5.51 ERA to go along with a 2-0 record this season. Martes will face the Yankees for the first time. He lasted just two innings in his last start. He allowed two runs on two hits. Martes also four walks to go with three strikeouts in the Astros’ 8-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners on June 25.

Astros right-hander Charlie Morton is set to return from the 10-day disabled list next week in Toronto. Morton had a month-long rehab stint to recover from a right lat strain. Martes is the likely candidate to give up a spot in the rotation and return to Triple-A Fresno.

The Yankees are trying to make to two straight over the 1st place Astros. They pummeled the Stros’ 13-4 last night.
