Verlander might be the Ace but he is hittable and Yankees offense is too mean. Break out the brooms.

Houston has been struggling mightily but do have their ace on the mound while the Yankees are the better team right now at plus money. The Yankees just seem to win games with Happ on the mound too making the plus money all the more tempting. However, the Astros are too good of a team to continue struggling like this and Happ, despite having a lot of success, going 6-0 in his last eight starts, Happ has an ERA well over five at home this season and I don't think this will hold up today against the Stro's offense. I like Houston to snap their losing streak today.50%

Love Verlander to show why he is so respected around the league and give his team a good outing when they need ti the most. Houston has struggled as of late in a big way losing 7 in a row. This team is too good to keep letting that happen and Verlander is a Veteran that can turn things around. This Yankees line up is dangerous and can score runs in bunches but I like Verlander to limit those chances. Hes struck out 32.5 percent of the batters hes faced in 2019, while walking just 4.9 percent and holding hitters to a outstanding .156 batting average against. Hes been even more stingy with runners in scoring position, stranding a healthy 92.9 percent of baserunners in 2019. The Astros have a lot of pride and they use that to salvage this series and get their feet back under them60%

Pinstripe Alley: Astros blast Yankees in series finale
The Astros beat down on the Yankees to avoid the sweep and salvage the final game of the four-game series. Houston rattled off nine runs, and they bullied J.A. Happ. The first batter he faced foreshadowed the rest of the game.
Jose Altuve led off the top of the first with a bomb into the left-field seats. It would give Houston an early 1-0 lead, and the 'Stros would not look back.
Altuve would help spark the second run for his team, as well. He doubled in the bottom of the third and scored on an RBI-single by Michael Brantley.
Fansided: Astros snap seven-game skid, blast Yankees 9-4
Fans have certainly had a rough time in the last week watching their Astros fail to win a game. We tell ourselves it's just a slump, and sure enough, they break out of it in a big way.
The team hit four homers in Sunday's 9-4 win over the Yankees, avoiding a second consecutive series sweep. The long balls backed a strong start by Justin Verlander, whose lone blemish was a three-run homer off the bat of DJ LeMahieu in the fifth inning.
Not only does the win get the proverbial monkey off the team's back, but it sets them up for the coming week.
ESPN.com: Hinting at how dominant they can become, Yankees soar past Astros
NEW YORK -- Yes, it's only June, but it seemed u202aSaturday night at Yankee Stadium like so much later in the year than that. There was a palpable buzz, an evident energy and a discernible electricity that made the night's game between division-leading foes Houston and New York feel like there was much more on the line than just one regular-season game.
It was precisely the kind of game, mid-season or not, the New York Yankees are continually looking to snatch in hopes of expanding their ever-widening lead in the American League East. With a primetime, two-game set in London versus the rival Red Sox and a key road series at Tampa Bay looming, they will have plenty of chances coming up to do that, too.
The Crawfish Boxes: Astros fall to Yankees for seventh straight loss, 7-5
You'll have to go back to the Astros Dark Ages to find a seven game losing streak. Oh, it's happened to great teams before, but it sure stings to be a player in the middle of it, or fan having to watch it.
Is it that the Astros don't care? Have they been unlucky, or are the Yankees just better right now?
Let us dispense with the first right away. The Astros are fighting, the Yankees know it, and with a hit instead of a hard line out in the ninth I probably wouldn't be writing this right now.
