Astros Vs. Mets: Houston Looks To Make It Two Straight Against New York

The Houston Astros kicked off a nine-game homestand the right way on Monday night when they beat the New York Mets, 4-3 off of a Jed Lowrie RBI single in the bottom of the eighth inning. On Tuesday night, Houston will look to continue that same kind of success when they meet the Mets for the second game of a three game set.

Houston finished the month of April with an unimpressive 9-14 record, leaving them as the fourth place team in the National League's Central Division. The Mets on the other hand had a strong first month compiling a 13-10 record and sit only 1.5 games out of first place in the highly competitive NL East.

The probable starters for Tuesday are J.A. Happ for the Astros and Jon Niese for the Mets.

Happ is 1-1 in four games started this season. He has a 4.70 ERA in 23 innings pitched and a 24-9 strikeouts-to-walks ratio. Niese is 2-0 this season in four games started with a 2.81 ERA in 25.2 innings pitched.

The game will start at 7:05 pm central time.
