The New York Yankees open a four-game home series Thursday night against the Houston Astros.
The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. at Yankee Stadium. The game will air in New York on YES Network and nationally on MLB Network.
Framber Valdez (7-3, 2.78) will leave for Houston, while Jameson Taillon (8-1, 2.70) will go for New York.
The Yankees (51-18) have the best record in baseball and lead the American League East by 12 games. The Astros (43-25), have the third-best record in MLB and have a 10-game lead in the AL West.
Houston, which is coming off two home games against the Mets, will be in New York for nearly a week — playing two at Citi Field after this streak.
