Luis Severino’s struggles continued as the Yankees (57-53) had their two-game win streak snapped with a 7-3 loss to the Astros (63-48) on Friday night at Yankee Stadium. 

Severino gave up five runs over five innings, three of which came in the first inning. His 7.74 ERA is the highest by a Yankee through the first 13 outings of a season in franchise history. 

The offense had several prime scoring opportunities but failed to capitalize, going 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position. All of New York’s runs came via the home run. Jake Bauers, Isiah Kiner-Falefa, and Giancarlo Stanton all went deep. 

The Yankees will try to bounce back in the third game of this four-game series on Saturday at 1:05 p.m. Nestor Cortes will come off the injured list and get the start.
