Shea-USA TODAY SportsSometimes, you just need a little bit of contact to make good things happen. It never hurts to have a little bit of luck, too.A two-run double with two outs from Robinson Chirinos tied the game in the seventh inning and Carlos Correa reached on a dinky grounder in the eighth to cap a late rally against the vaunted New York Yankees bullpen and give the Houston Astros their fourth straight victory, 4-3, Monday night.Things looked bleak for the Astros, who trailed by two runs with two outs in the bottom of the seventh against primo reliever Zach Britton. Tyler White worked a four-pitch walk to put runners at first and second as Chirinos stepped to the plate. Chirinos scalded his second double in as many innings to tie the game when a chugging White snuck by Gary Sanchez.Correa found his teammate’s hustle irresistible. Reliever Adam Ottavino came on for Britton to strike out George Springer and temporarily end the threat.After a scoreless eighth from the reliable Ryan Pressly, the Astros again went on the offensive against a stellar cog in the Yankees bullpen.Alex Bregman worked a one-out walk from Ottavino and Michael Brantley followed with a hard single up the middle to beat the shift and put runners at the corners with one out.Then, the Astros received a lucky bounce that resembled the magic we’ve seen so often the last two seasons.Correa got jammed by a high, inside fastball that he fought off and meekly pushed toward first base. The ball came off Correa’s bat at 28.9 mph with a two-degree launch angle, took a funky bounce, stayed fair, and allowed Bregman to score the game-winning run.Closer Roberto Osuna retired the first two batters he faced to bring Aaron Judge—who was already 2-2 with a home run and two walks—to the plate. Judge hit a laser on the first pitch right at Springer, giving the Astros their fourth straight win , all coming at Minute Maid Park. Osuna logged his third save of the season and Pressly collected his first win in 2019.Verlander and Masahiro Tanaka both got off to good starts Monday night. Each pitcher allowed just one hit through the first two innings.Verlander permitted a one-out walk to 9-hole hitter Gio Urshela to turn the lineup over in the third inning. Brett Gardner followed with a single and a walk to Judge loaded the bases with one out. An RBI single from Luke Voit gave the Yankees a 1-0 lead as their fourth straight batter reached base. Verlander retired the next two batters to limit the damage, though he required 30+ pitches in an inning for the second straight outing.The Yankees do a good job of making pitchers work. New York finished with the third-most pitches per plate appearance (4.01) in 2018 and were at 4.32 pitches/plate appearance (second-most in MLB) coming into tonight’s game, a stark contrast to the Astros general offensive philosophy. Houston saw the eighth-fewest pitches/plate appearance (3.85 pitches/PA) in 2018 and have the exact same rank (3.82 pitches/PA) so far in 2019.Verlander’s pitch count was up to 73 with one out in fourth and for the second time in as many starts it looked like he might not make it through the fifth inning. Fortunately, Bregman made a diving stab to get the Astros out of the inning, which was an exceptionally good thing with Jose Altuve leading off the inning.Altuve smoked Tanaka’s 40th pitch of the night deep over the train tracks to tie the game, 1-1.Statcast registered the damage at 109 mph and 448 feet. Back-to-back hits by D.J. LeMahieu and Clint Frazier doubled the Yankees lead in the sixth inning. Verlander struck out Urshela to finish six innings with three runs, 7 hits, 6 strikeouts and 111 pitches.Verlander had trouble locating his fastball in particular, generating just five whiffs on 30 swings against the pitch (props to bilbos for sharing the pitch f/x tool). Will Harris allowed a hit and walk in the seventh against the heart of the New York order, but didn’t surrender a run. Neither Harris nor Pressly have allowed a run in 2019 and have a WHIP of 0.90 and 0.46, respectively. In fact, Pressly has an impressive scoreless streak that dates back to last season.Judge, who recorded the first hit of his career against Verlander in in the first inning, reached base in his first four plate appearances of the game—including an opposite field homer in the fifth inning that gave the Yankees a 2-1 lead.The scorching Bregman reached base in his first two plate appearances for the Astros and is on fire.Box score and videos HERE.The Astros host the Yankees again tomorrow night at 7pm Central, with Jonathan Loaisiga (0-0, 2.25) opposing Gerrit Cole (0-2, 3.00). LAS VEGAS (AP) — Andrew McCutchen moving into Philadelphia’s outfield Delino DeShields Jersey , more talk about a megadeal involving Noah Syndergaard and J.T. Realmuto and veteran pitcher Ivan Nova on the go.The winter meetings picked up a bit Tuesday, but any big deals for the likes of Corey Kluber, Manny Machado and Bryce Harper remained on deck.There were reports the Baltimore Orioles were close to hiring a manager in Chicago Cubs bench coach Brandon Hyde. But the O’s said those stories were premature and they wouldn’t make a decision before leaving Las Vegas.“We don’t have a manager,” newly hired general manager Mike Elias said.The World Series champion Red Sox made a move, too — with their lineup. AL MVP Mookie Betts will shift out of the leadoff spot and bat behind Andrew Benintendi, manager Alex Cora said.“I think we’re going to maximize Mookie in a different spot. Flip-flop them, Beni leading off and Mookie hitting second. Talked to him, it makes sense,” Cora said.“And I know Beni’s OK with it. But if you play 162 games, you’re going to come up 162 at-bats with nobody on,” he said. “And last year, what I wanted from him in the leadoff spot, we accomplished. It’s a different season and we have to make adjustments, and that’s where we’re going to go.”Betts led the majors in batting (.346) and slugging percentage (.640) and was second in on-base average (.438) for the 108-win Red Sox. He also had 84 extra-base hits, including 32 home runs.Speculation continued to swirl about a huge swap that would include the Yankees and Mets. The New York teams don’t usually do business directly, but this trade would enlist a third team — the Miami Marlins and Realmuto, their star catcher.“I’d like to think that we’re very open-minded and aggressive and talk to everybody about what’s available in the marketplace. And so it doesn’t matter really for most part what the team is. I’ll explore every opportunity that might be available Joey Gallo Jersey ,” Yankees GM Brian Cashman said.McCutchen, meanwhile, and the Phillies agreed to a $50 million, three-year contract, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement, which includes a club option for 2022, is subject to a successful physical.The 32-year-old was the NL MVP in 2013, highlighting his long run in Pittsburgh. He split last season with San Francisco and the Yankees, hitting a combined .255 with 20 homers and 65 RBIs.The Phillies have a surplus of outfielders, including Odubel Herrera, Nick Williams, Aaron Altherr and Roman Quinn. Rhys Hoskins is shifting from left field to first base after Carlos Santana was dealt to Seattle.Nova was traded from the Pirates to the Chicago White Sox for minor league pitcher Yordi Rosario and $500,000 in international signing bonus pool allocation. The 31-year-old righty was 9-9 with a 4.19 ERA in 29 starts this season.The White Sox were searching for a starter after prized rookie Michael Kopech had Tommy John surgery in September.“We think he’s going to be able to eat up some innings and pitch effectively for us,” Chicago manager Rick Renteria said. “I think the front office was doing their due diligence in trying to acquire someone of Nova’s status and stature, and all the reports from everybody we’ve spoken to, this kid’s a good pick up for us.”
