Final Score: Reds 3 , Astros 2.

Record: 48-27, first in the AL West.

Winning pitcher: Matt Bowman (1-0) 0.77 ERA

Losing pitcher: Roberto Osuna (3-1) 2.32 ERA

Up Next: Houston will head to New York to face the Yankees on Thursday night at 6:05pm. The pitching matchup for the opener will be Framber Valdez (3-2, 2.77 ERA) for the Astros and the Yankees' starter is yet to be determined.
