The Houston Astros and the New York Yankees will both be gunning for a victory on Friday when they meet at Yankee Stadium.

The Astros will trot Lance McCullers Jr. out to the mound in this one. Right hander McCullers Jr. has a 2-1 record and a 3.40 ERA this season.

The Yankees will counter McCullers Jr. with Jordan Montgomery. Left hander Montgomery has a 3.81 ERA to go along with a 2-1 record this season.

McCullers had to settle for a no-decision despite a stellar performance at the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday, when he allowed one earned run on two hits in a season high-tying seven innings. He also did not factor in the decision in his previous turn, a 10-strikeout effort in which he worked 6 1/3 innings of two-run ball. He also had 10 strikeouts in his lone start versus New York.

Montgomery pitched a career-high 6 2/3 innings at the Chicago Cubs on Saturday, picking up the victory after giving up three runs (two earned) on three hits. It was the third quality start in the past four turns for the 24-year-old rookie, who has allowed four walks in each of his last two outings. Montgomery has held the opposition to 3-for-29 with runners in scoring position.

Oddsmakers currently have the Astros listed as 132-moneyline favorites versus the Yankees, while the game’s total is sitting at 8.

An early-season showdown among two of the American League’s best teams will have a hard act to follow after a dramatic ending to the series opener. The visiting Houston Astros will carry a four-game winning streak and the best record in the majors into Friday’s matchup against the New York Yankees in the second of a four-game set.

Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick nailed down Houston’s 3-2 victory in the series opener, throwing out Jacoby Ellsbury at the plate for the final out of the game. Shortstop Carlos Correa’s two run blast gave him seven RBIs in the past three games for the Astros, who have won nine of their last 11. New York rolled up 48 runs during a six-game winning streak, but has scored only five times in dropping back-to-back games for only the second time since the season’s opening week. Gary Sanchez has five RBIs during a five-game winning streak after delivering the single that plated the Yankees’ second run before Ellsbury was gunned down.

Last time out for New York, they were a 3-2 loser as they battled the Astros on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Astros at 113 were rewarded, while the 5 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

The Astros were a 3-2 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Yankees. That made winners of bettors who got Houston at 113 on the moneyline, while the total score (5) was good news for UNDER bettors.
