Major League baseball is now underway.  Monday was technically opening day but not for the Houston Astros.  Monday the Astros were scheduled to begin their season in New York against the Yankees but due to weather, the game was postponed setting the scene for their first game of the year yesterday.

After just two innings, the Astros were down as the Yankees scored twice to take the lead 2-0.  Houston rebounded in the fourth and sixth innings with a run in each frame to tie the game up.

Then the bats came alive in the top of the eighth for the Astros.  The boys in orange and blue posted three runs to take the lead for good.  The Yankees tried to make a comeback posting one run in the bottom of the eighth but Houston pitching held them off and the Astros won their opening day game on the road 5-3.

The Yankees and the Astros will do it all over again today when they play at 6:05 p.m.
