The New York Yankees win a nail biter over the Houston Astros

The New York Yankees defeated the Houston Astros on Monday night.  The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York and the final score was 1-0 Yankees.  Nathan Eovaldi started for the Yankees and pitched great.  The Yankees offense was pretty much Brian McCann who led them with three hits. 

Eovaldi pitched eight innings giving up no runs on four hits.  He walked three and struck out seven.  Andrew Miller picked up his second win of the season pitching a scoreless inning and giving up a hit and striking out two batters. 

Scott Feldman also pitched great for Houston.  He kept matching zeroes with Eovaldi.  He pitched eight innings giving up six hits and no runs with no walks and six strikeouts.  Oliver Perez took his second loss of the season not recording an out and giving up a run and three walks.  Chad Qualls only faced one batter and retired him but that was the walk-off sac fly. 

Brett Gardner drew a walk, Alex Rodriguez was intentionally walked and McCann had three hits and drew a walk.  Carlos Beltran had a hit and an RBI, Didi Gregorius had a hit and Stephen Drew had a hit.  The Yankees were 0-5 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base.  Ellsbury had a stolen base and Headley committed an error. 

Jose Altuve drew a walk, Carlos Correa had two hits and Colby Rasmus drew a walk.  Evan Gattis had two hits, Luis Valbuena had a hit and drew a walk and the Astros were 0-7 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on base.  Marisnick was caught stealing and Gomez had an outfield assist. 

The only run of the game came in the bottom of the ninth.  Perez walked Gardner, a passed ball moved Gardner to second.  Rodriguez was intentionally walked and McCann walked.  Qualls came in with the bases loaded and no outs and gave up the walk-off sac fly to Beltran and the Yankees won 1-0.  The Yankees and Astros will play game two of three on Tuesday night.  The Yankees and Blue Jays are tied for the AL East lead with the same exact record and will play seven more times this season.
