The Yankees closed out April with a win, ending the first month of the season with a 16-10 record – far above expectations. Tonight, they look to open up a new month with a victory and a series win over the Astros. David Phelps will get the start for the Yanks against familiar face Erik Bedard. The Yankees will have their first day off tomorrow in about two weeks.
