Chris Carter Helps Send Houston Past New York Last Night 7-4

The Houston Astros were able to top the New York Yankees last night in dramatic fashion as designated hitter Chris Carter blasted a three run home run that broke up a ninth inning tie on Tuesday night.  “I was just trying to hit it and put it in play,” said Carter, who struck out in his first four at-bats.  “My first four at-bats, I didn’t do anything.”  Yankees reliever David Robertson grooved a 3-0 pitch over the middle of the plate, and the surging slugger crushed it, sending the pitch over the left-field wall to snap a 4-4 tie and send the Astros to their third win in four games against the Yankees this year.

On the mound for Houston was starter Brett Oberholtzer as his run of starts of at least six innings came to an end when he was pulled after giving up four runs and seven hits in just over five innings in his shortest outing since April 30th.  He had pitched at least six innings in 11 consecutive starts.

Houston and New York will continue their mid-week series today as they look build off of last nights win.  With the win, the team improved to 53-73 on the year which is still 22 games back of the Oakland Athletics in the AL West.  First pitch for today’s game is set for 6:05pm from Yankees Stadium in the Bronx with the pregame starting at 5:45pm and you can hear all the action right here on Sports Radio 1340 the FAN.
