After a scoreless first inning for Gerrit Cole and Cristian Javier, the Astros stuck first, getting some runs on the board in the top of the second. With two outs in the inning, Christian Vazquez hit a fly ball to center field that was dropped by Harrison Bader. Chas McCormick stepped into the box and hit a home run down the right field line, giving the Astros a 2-0 lead.

Jose Altuve then grounded out to short, ending the inning. Dusty Baker lost a challenge thinking that Altuve beat out the throw. The bats for both clubs were quiet again until the top of the sixth, when Alex Bregman ripped a double to left field off Gerrit Cole. Next Kyle Tucker would walk and Yuli Gurriel hit a bloop single to right field loading the bases. Trey Mancini was next up facing Lou Trivino with Gerrit Cole being pulled. Mancini hit a sac fly to left, scoring Bregman and advancing all the runners. Christian Vazquez would be the next Astro up, and he ripped a single to left center, clearing the bases.

After a couple of ground outs from McCormick and Altuve, the Astros would head to the bottom of the sixth up, 5-0.

Cristian Javier started off the inning getting a ground ball for the first out. Anthony Rizzo then walked after hitting a long foul ball to right. This prompted Dusty Baker to pull Javier for Hector Neris to face Aaron Judge. Judge struck out on a splitter, and Giancarlo Stanton grounded out to end the inning.

The game would remain 5-0 heading to the bottom of the ninth with Bryan Abreu coming in to close it out. After surrendering a couple of hits, Abreu would finish off the shutout.

Astros 5, Yankees 0

Deshaun Watson will make his Cleveland Browns debut this Sunday against his former team at NRG Stadium. Watson has completed his suspension from the NFL for alleged sexual misconduct with dozens of massage therapists, and this Sunday will be the first game he has played in 700 days.

The Browns sit at 4-7 hoping Watson will be the spark the team needs to stack some wins and get into the Wild Card race. The Texans are still searching for their second win of the season, and many believe the team will be hiring another head coach come January.

With this in mind, who has the worst reputation? The Texans or Deshaun Watson?

It seems like an easy answer with Watson's legal troubles, but upon further review, the answer has to be the Texans. The Texans have hired two consecutive coaches that no other NFL team even interviewed. It seems like no quality candidates have any interest in coaching the Texans. Watson, however, had teams lining up for his services when the Texans decided to trade him.

Be sure to check out the video above as we dive into this topic and make a convincing case, as crazy as it sounds, that Watson is perceived to have a better reputation.
