Astros hold off Yankees twice

The Astros had a great day Thursday in Houston, beating the New York Yankees twice rather than once.

In game two of a doubleheader, the crowd favorites built a five-point lead after the first two ends. The Yankees did try to come from behind on home runs – courtesy of Gleyber Torres and Aaron Judge – but the Astros held on to win 7-5.

Yordan Alvarez, Alex Bregman and Chas McCormick also kicked a ball into the stands in the winning clan. Luis Garcia (8-5) won, while Domingo Germán (0-1) lost.

Matijevic plays the heroes

In Game 1, a single by J.J. Matijevic in the bottom of the ninth inning allowed the Astros to score the winning run in a 3-2 win.

A few minutes earlier, Isiah Kiner-Falefa had given the crowd a good shower of cold water by creating the equality with a single. Matijevic's efforts, however, avoided the extra sets in this first duel of a doubleheader.

DJ LeMahieu produced the other point for the Bronx Bombers, who had nevertheless scored no less than 27 points in their two previous outings. Cristian Javier did the heavy lifting for the Astros on the mound, limiting his opponents to one run and two hits in five innings. Although he screwed up the short lead of his team, Hector Neris (3-3) signed the victory.

On the mound when the winning run was scored, Michael King (6-3) suffered the loss.

Rangers stop the slide

The Texas Rangers returned to victory in style by defeating the Marlins 8-0 in Miami.

Adolis García was the most productive player in this encounter, contributing three points. His two-run homer in the fifth inning notably gave the visitors a five-run lead.

On the mound, Jon Gray (7-4) spaced four hits and walked two in six innings. Pablo López (6-5) was less successful in the opposing clan, allowing five points and as many shots to safety in five innings of work.

Rangers were back on the road after a 10-game home streak that did not smile on them. Indeed, they have just been swept in a series of four games against the Seattle Mariners.
