Astros Blast: Live Game Feed vs. Texas Rangers Game 1
By Eric Huysman
The Houston Astros open a big series versus the first place Texas Rangers tonight, join the convo here.
The Astros are out to prove that the Astros record versus the Rangers last season was a fluke, and they hope to get the off to a great start to the three-game road trip. Following this three games in Arlington, they will come home to face the Boston Red Sox. The Astros have a 5-8 record so far in the 2016 season while the first place Rangers have eyes on improving their 7-6 record on the season.
Conversely, the Astros are facing their first left-handed pitcher on the season, so they will trot out a slightly different lineup. Tyler White has been thrown into a bigger role for tonight’s game as the cleanup hitter with the only left-handed hitter being Jason Castro. Scott Feldman is on the mound for the Astros versus Derek Holland.
Here is the lineup for the visiting Astros
2B – Jose Altuve
RF – George Springer
ss – Carlos Correa
1B – White
DH – Evan Gattis
CF – Carlos Gomez
3B – Marwin Gonzalez
C – Castro
