The Astros and Yankees are two of the most successful teams in baseball. The two teams have met in the playoffs numerous times, with the Astros winning the most recent matchup in 2019. However, the two teams have not played each other in the regular season since 2017.
The Astros are scheduled to play the Yankees in 2020, but the schedule has not been released yet. It is unclear when the two teams will play each other again, but it is safe to say that it will be a highly anticipated matchup.
History of the Rivalry
The New York Yankees and Houston Astros are two of the most successful teams in Major League Baseball (MLB) history. The Yankees have won a record 27 World Series championships, while the Astros have won five (all since moving to the American League in 2013).
The two teams first faced each other in spring training play in 1918, and they have been regular opponents ever since. The rivalry intensified in the late 1960s and early 1970s, when the two teams battled each other for American League supremacy. The Yankees won three straight World Series titles from 1977 to 1978, while the Astros won pennants in 1980 and 1986.
The rivalry was renewed in the late 1990s and early 2000s, when the Yankees and Astros met each other in the playoffs four times between 1998 and 2005. The most recent playoff meeting came in the 2017 American League Championship Series, which was won by the Astros en route to their first World Series title.
The two teams will meet for a four-game series at Minute Maid Park from June 4-7, 2020.
