Spring Training Game Thread 3, March 2, 2021. 12:10 CST. Astros @ Mets

Yesterday the Astros had a miracle ninth-inning comeback win against the Washington Nationals, winning 7-6, led by a bunch-of-guys-you’ll-probably-not-hear-much-from-again-this-year.

But possible back-end starter Nivaldo Rodriguez started with two good innings, and possible George Springer replacement, Steven Souza hit a two-run homer.

Today, 2020 Astros ace pitcher Framber Valdez goes up against the Mets’ Marcus Stroman. Myles Straw gets another look in CF and lead-off, while Michael Brantley gets his Spring Training debut. Winter league star Jeremy Pena gets the start at SS, who the Mets will counter with one of their late acquisitions, Francisco Lindor.

Inquiring minds want to know: Where’s Jordan?
