Rookie Correa leads Astros over Yankees 3-1

HOUSTON (AP) - Rookie Carlos Correa doubled twice and scored the tiebreaking run on a triple by Evan Gattis in the seventh inning to help the Houston Astros to a 3-1 win over the New York Yankees on Sunday.

Collin McHugh (9-3) allowed a season-low two hits - both singles - and one run and eight strikeouts in eight innings for his third straight win. Luke Gregerson pitched a perfect ninth for his 18th save.

The game was tied 1-1 when Correa doubled with no outs in the seventh and advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt by Jose Altuve. The triple by Gattis, which sailed just out of reach of center fielder Brett Gardner and bounced off the low wall in left-center, scored Correa and put Houston on top 2-1.
