Astros 7, Yankees 4

NEW YORK -- Chris Carter hit a three-run home run with one out in the top of the ninth inning, lifting Houston over New York.

After striking out four times for the seventh time in his career, Carter rebounded by crushing a 3-0 cutter from New York closer David Robertson (1-4) into the left field bleachers. It was Carter's 30th home run of the season and 17th since July 1, the most in the majors since then.

The Astros beat the Yankees for the third time in four meetings this season by pounding out 13 hits. Jose Altuve reached base three times, including coming back from an 0-2 count against Robertson to draw a walk in the ninth ahead of Carter.
