Leading: Yankees-Astros play 1-game series in Houston

A look at what’s happening around today’s big companies:


Am I on my way?

The Yankees and Astros will meet in a one-game series between the AL division leaders at Minute Maid Park – the makeup of a matchup postponed by the lockout.

Both teams were on New York-to-Houston flights after Wednesday afternoon’s win in the Big Apple. Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton registered a 5-3 win over Oakland at Yankee Stadium; Justin Verlander and the Astros beat the NL former-leading Mets 2-0 at Citi Field.

Houston left fielder Yordan Alvarez and hit shortstop Jeremy Pea while down a popup. Alvarez got on a carriage, and Pea went back to the dugout. Both clubs were running into the house postgame and manager Dusty Baker said the team was awaiting medical reports.

Luis Garcia (5-5, 3.68 ERA), who defeated the Yankees in his last outing, starts for Houston against Luis Severino (4-2, 3.38 ERA). The clubs split a four-game series in the Bronx last weekend.

It will be a quick trip to Texas for the Yankees – they start a series in Cleveland on Friday night. Houston gets to stay home and welcome Mike Trout, Shohei Ohtani and the Angels over the weekend.

no place like your home

Tree Turner, Freddie Freeman and the NL West-leading Dodgers opened their longest homestand of the season, an 11-game stay against San Diego, Colorado and the Cubs.

Joe Musgrove (8-1, 2.12 ERA) starts against Mitch White (1-1, 4.25) for the second-place Padres. Musgrove absorbed his only defeat on his previous start this year, giving Philadelphia six runs in six innings.

Los Angeles is 20-12 at Dodger Stadium. The Padres are on the road 24-15.

“I know we are leading (the division) and they are going to come with some energy as we have seen. We have to match that,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “We have to play good baseball. Either way, we still have a lot of baseball to play, but of course we want to play our best baseball in this series.”

so long, for a while

Luis Aires and the Minnesota Twins ended a five-match series in Cleveland with the last eight matchups in the space of 10 days between the top two teams in the AL Central. After this, they would not see each other again until September.

Chris Archer (2-3, 3.14 ERA) for Minnesota starts against 2020 AL Cy Young Award winner Shane Bieber (3-4, 3.07). Archer is 0-7 with a 5.87 ERA in eight career starts against Cleveland.

Minnesota leads the division by two games over Cleveland after teams split the first four games of the series.

Josh Naylor hit a two-run homer with two outs in the 10th innings on Wednesday night, completing a four-run rally that gave the Guardian a thrilling 7-6 win. After scoring the bases, Naylor enthusiastically hit 63-year-old Cleveland manager Terry Francona in the head, who was wearing a batting helmet.

Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said, “I don’t think you’ll see a game harder on a team than this.” “We have to find a way to end the game.”

June Bloom

Star outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. (left leg injury) will rejoin the Braves in Philadelphia and could play for a three-game sweep of Atlanta.

Akuna has missed the last three games after fouling a ball off his foot in Saturday’s win over the Dodgers. He stayed back in Atlanta for treatment when the Braves traveled to Philadelphia.

The Braves are 21-5 in June, matching the team record for most wins in a calendar month since the club moved from Milwaukee to Atlanta in 1966. They’ll try to set a new mark when Ian Anderson (6-4, 4.60 ERA) pitches against Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola (4-5, 2.98).

The Brewers will see how center fielder Jonathan Davis is feeling, a day after he hit a padded wall in Tampa Bay and took a terrific catch.

Davis ran at full speed and jumped back to intercept Randy Arrozarena’s drive in the second innings on Wednesday. He was down for several minutes holding his back and was ruled out of the game in the next innings with lower back and rib cage problems.

“Fantastic, scary… those two words,” said Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell. “He’s doing great. He’s sore. He’s a good center fielder, so I thought he had a chance, but where did the ball end up and how hard it was… for him to get there and take care of his health and wellness.” It’s fantastic to put the body at risk.”

The brewers opened a chain in Pittsburgh.
