Astros open with victory over Rangers

Astros open with victory over Rangers”

Springer hit 34 home runs during the regular season past year for the Astros, all from the leadoff spot.

And this time, they had Justin Verlander for opening day. The bullpen looked good. Brad Peacock pitched well in his inning of work.

NY scored five runs in the fifth inning to break open a tie game, and right-hander Noah Syndergaard became just the second pitcher in franchise history to record at least 10 strikeouts on Opening Day in a win over visiting St. Louis. Two, with the long ball, Springer became the first player in Major League Baseball history to open consecutive years with leadoff home runs. "Not only that, it was his 100th career homer, that's a big milestone".

Verlander started in his tenth straight opening day; it was his first with the Astros.

BREWERS 2, PADRES 1: Orlando Arcia singled in Ji-Man Choi with two outs in the 12th inning to lift Milwaukee at San Diego. Richard Bleier (1-0) worked one inning for the Orioles, who made the most of five hits.

On Thursday, Springer worked the count to 2-0 against Hamels before hitting a 90 miles per hour two-seam fastball the opposite way and over the wall for his 100th career home run.

Adrian Gonzalez produced the go-ahead hit in the fifth with a one-out RBI double for the Mets. Despite some missed opportunities including having the bases loaded in the third, the offense looked sharp and ready to destroy opposing pitching through the duration of the season.

Astros lefty Dallas Keuchel (14-5 last season), the 2015 AL Cy Young Award victor, starts against Rangers newcomer Doug Fister (5-9 for Boston). The forward-thinking Houston Astros wasted no time employing the defensive strategy in the season opener, sending third baseman Alex Bregman out to left field during a first inning Joey Gallo at-bat. Looking ahead to the rest of the games this weekend, it's hard to imagine the Astros losing. This means there was a gaping hole on the left side of the infield, but it's a spot Gallo nearly never seems to find.

Now that's a celebration from the World Series champs Who were you rooting for, the Houston Astros or the Texas Rangers?
