The 2014 MLB live stream and TV schedule continues today and for the New York Yankees and their fans they have to be hoping yesterday's Opening Day game vs. the Houston Astros is not a sign of things to come. New York looked like the Bad News Bears, throwing balls over and past bases, dropping routine ground balls and struggling at the plate the entire game. The good news is they get right back to it today.
According to an ESPN report on April 2, New York will send Hiroki Kuroda to the mound hoping for much better results than CC Sabathia had yesterday. By the numbers, Kuroda is the man New York wants on the hill today when the Yankees take on the Astros.
The right-hander has had great success vs. Houston over his career, posting a 4-0 record with a 1.39 ERA in eight career starts. He also hasn't given up a run to the Astros over his last 22 innings against them.
No matter how good Kuroda pitches today, the Yankees top three hitters are going to have to play much better than they did last night if they want to tie this series up. Lead-off hitter Jacoby Ellsbury finished 0-4 while Derek Jeter, Carlos Beltran and Brian McCann finished a combined 3 for 11. Numbers like that usually don't result in wins.
Las Vegas odds makers have New York as the favorite listed at -165 with over/under number set at 8.5.
Fans can catch this game on both the TV and streaming online through MLB's Extra Innings package. Extra Innings is free today through Sunday so don't miss out!
First pitch is scheduled for 8:05 p.m. EST.
