The Houston Astros and the New York Yankees face off on Saturday at Minute Maid Park for game three of their series that is knotted at a game each.

The New York Yankees got back to winning on Friday as they beat the Astros in Houston. Chris Young had three hits including a home run and Brett Gardener and Garrett Jones each had two hits as the Yankees scored three runs on nine hits. Starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi allowed five hits and two runs while striking out six over 6.0 innings to get the win and go to 7-2 for the season and Dellin Betances earned his fifth save. For Saturday’s game the Yankees start Masahiro Tanaka who has allowed 41 hits and 17 earned runs while striking out 51 over 48.1 innings for a 4-3 record and a 3.17 ERA.
Houston is 7-1 as a home underdog, 16-6 in their last 21 home games, and 5-1 in Oberholtzer’s last six starts as a home underdog. New York is 7-1 in game three of a series, 2-5 in their last seven road games, and 9-4 in Tanaka’s last 13 starts as a road favorite. New York is 8-3 in their last 11 meetings in Houston.
This should be another tactical game and that means not a lot of offense so my free pick is the under. I also have a play on the winning team and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
