Astros vs. Yankees Game Highlights (6/24/22) | MLB Highlights

The Houston Astros and New York Yankees' three-game series is officially even. The Astros tie the game by winning the second set against Aaron Boone's team.

With this, the Astros beat Aaron Judge and his teammates 3-1 after being defeated 7-6 by the Yankees in the series opener.

First loss at home in over a month? Pretty crazy honestly.

Justin Verlander was playing as a starting pitcher at Yankee home ground, Yankee Stadium, and surrounded by the season-high crowd, which consists of around 47,528 people.

Verlander pitched four-hit ball over seven innings and outfielder Kyle Tucker hit a three-homer as the Astros got the win. It was the Yankees' first loss after the 15 winning streaks and the fourth loss in the last 23 games.

Verlander gets recognition

Verlander averaged 95.5 mph with his fastball, up from 94.8 mph coming in. In that very match, Verlander threw 64 fastballs, 24 sliders, 11 curveballs, and three-changeup.

The 39-year-old is on 9-3 with the Astros this season and he has now lowered his ERA to 2.22 after the game. Also, he recorded three strikeouts and walked one.

Meanwhile, Yankees’ star Judge recognized Verlander’s play and now he is going 0-3 in his matchup with Verlander.

"This is a team that's hard to predict, dramatic, never stops, never quits."@RealMichaelKay, @carlosbeltran15, and @dcone36 are running out of superlatives to describe the Yankees this season 👇#YANKSonYES

"That's why he's going to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer," Judge said. "He continues to bring it every single start."

"I thought the fastball was really good," he added. "I thought the slider was kind of hit and miss, and the curveball got me some big outs when I needed it."

Having a matchup with Verlander, Luis Severino struck out four batters in the first 10 Astros hitting lineups. Severino said that facing the Astros and Verlander was a tough task.

"Against a team like this and against a pitcher like Verlander," the Yankees' pitcher said. "You have to minimize those mistakes."

Astros’ to end Yankees streak

Verlander and Kyle Tucker's hit brought the Houston Astros to win against the Yankees, ending the streak.

It was the pitcher’s first match at Yankee Stadium after a season-ending UCL injury in 2020. The Astros were winning with Verlander's three K’s and four hit. Verlander relied heavily on his fastballs and was subbed by Phil Maton in the 8th innings.

More pitches coming from Phil Maton were striking out Judge, Stanton, and Josh Donaldson. Coming in as a substitute, Maton threw one curveball to Judge and sliders to not allow Stanton and Donaldson to score a run.

The Yankees' streak ended when Severino was facing Tucker on the mound. It was all the offense, his hit got the Astros a three-homer for a 3-1 victory.

Luis Severino, Nasty 87mph Slider. 😨

It started in the fifth when Yuli Gurriel led off with a double and Aledmys Díaz was running to the corner after a single hit. Severino struck out Jason Castro, Jake Meyers, and Jose Altuve in order to not allow Houston scores.

In the sixth, Astros’ Tucker came for the batting, he won against Severino. With one out, Alex Bregman doubled, Alvarez walked, and Tucker on facing, Severino was beaten after the hits from Tucker led to a three-homer to 3-0 for the Astros.

The Yankees' Stanton then snapped a homer for the team. It was a 3-1 for the Astros to win at the end and the Yankees are on their first loss.

The next matchup will be the last game of the three-game series between the Houston Astros and New York Yankees and it will be a chance to get the two games over three for both teams respectively.
