Yankees Lose to Rival Astros in Pitchers’ Duel, 2-1

The Yankees have played 14 teams and have a winning record against all but one.

It shouldn’t be hard to come up with the exception, as the Yankees lost to the Astros, 2-1, — and have lost three of the team’s five meetings so far this year.

They’ve also been held to one runs or fewer in three of those games, including last week’s no-hitter in The Bronx.

“They’re good,’’ Aaron Boone said of why Houston’s pitchers have been so effective against his team. “They’re one of the best teams at keeping you from scoring as there is.”

This one snapped the Yankees’ four-game winning streak, as the visitors opened a 10-game, four-city trip in front of a sellout crowd of 40,674 at Minute Maid Park.

Luis Severino gave the Yankees a good outing, but they couldn’t take advantage and dropped the first game of their road trip.
