Houston Astros vs. New York Yankees Post Game Recap
Final Score: Astros 4 Yankees 5
The New York Yankees were able to start the month of May with their second straight win over the Astros, which gives them the series win. Despite all the injuries the Yankees still find ways to win and are (17-10) on the year.
David Phelps getting the chance to be the fifth starter in the Yankees rotation didn’t do a very good job to solidify his spot in the rotation. Phelps was given a four run lead, but couldn’t hold it, which is something a pitcher trying to be in the rotation has to do. Phelps finished the game going 5.2 innings allowing four runs on eight hits, and one walk, in what was a sub-par start from him.
