The ageless Mariano Rivera (pictured, left) notched another save in his Hall of Fame career as the New York Yankees beat the Houston Astros 7-4 on Tuesday.

Astros starter Phillip Humber had a rough night, throwing four wild pitches and giving up four runs in the loss. Humber’s record is now (0-6) on the season.

The Yankees opened up the scoring in the first inning as Travis Hafner drove in Brett Gardner on a single to left. Hafner drove in two more runs with RBI singles in the third and eighth innings.

The Astros first runs of the game came in the eighth inning as Chris Carter hit a two-run homer to right field.

Hiroki Kuroda got the win for the Yankees as he pitched 7 shutout innings.  Mariano Rivera struck out the only batter he faced, Jason Castro, to end the game and get the save.
