Gurriel’s bat lifts Astros over Yanks
Yuli Gurriel belted a two-run homer in the fifth inning and added a two-RBI double in the eighth as the Houston Astros rallied for a 7-6 victory over the New York Yankees on Saturday in Houston.
The Astros trailed 6-3 in the eighth before Jose Altuve walked with one out and stole second and third before scoring on a groundout by Carlos Correa. Evan Gattis then connected off Dellin Betances (3-3) on a towering shot to the train tracks atop left field to cut the lead to 6-5.
Carlos Beltran walked and was replaced by pinch-runner Josh Reddick, who reached second on an error by first baseman Chris Carter before stealing third.
