Astros launch dramatic rally to take down Yankees

A night after the Astros lost a laugher to the Yankees and an hour after losing starter David Paulino for the rest of the season because of a drug suspension, the Astros searched for an uplifting win on Saturday night.. A night after the Astros lost a laugher to the Yankees and an hour after losing starter David Paulino for the rest of the season because of a drug suspension, the Astros searched for an uplifting win on Saturday night. Yulieski Gurriel notched career highs with three hits and four runs batted in on a home run early and a dramatic double off fellow countryman Aroldis Chapman to drive in the go-ahead run. The Astros took a 2-0 lead when Gurriel laced a two-run home run in the fifth. Francis Martes masterfully executed his four-pitch repertoire through four innings against the Yankees. […] for the second consecutive day, the Astros lost a lead by surrendering five runs in the sixth inning. In his major league debut, Clint Frazier, a top-ranked outfield prospect, sparked the outburst with a leadoff double and Didi Gregorious punctuated it with the grand slam to right field.
