Spring training is over – regular season MLB baseball is finally back! And over in Florida today sees the now former-World Series champs Houston Astros in action. Will they build on yesterday's 5-1 win? Find out with an Astros vs Rays live stream today.
After a long awaited off-season and all the anticipation that spring training brings, baseball has returned to cities across the US. Although Floridians may have preferred that it had come a day later, with the Astros coasting to a 5-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on the Opening Day.
That was largely thanks to a three-run homer flown to center field by George Springer. As you'd hope from his name, Springer has form for getting MLB seasons off to a flying start and yesterday was no exception. It was his third consecutive season hitting a home run in the first game up. Today's pitching match-up sees Gerrit Cole go up against Charlie Morton, with Cole the favorite to give Houston a two game series lead.
