Yankees win with one hit, Correa leads Astros


The New York Yankees needed just one hit to win in MLB as the Houston Astros required 13 innings.

Starlin Castro's two-run homer in the seventh was the Yankees' only hit as they claimed a 2-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.

It was the first time the Yankees won with just one hit since July 10, 1914.

Carlos Correa blasted a pinch-hit, three-run homer in the 13th to see the Astros edge the Los Angeles Angels 8-6.

Ben Zobrist stretched his hitting streak to 15 games as the Chicago Cubs beat the Philadelphia Phillies 7-2, and the Kansas City Royals rallied past the Chicago White Sox 5-4.

A five-run second inning set up the Arizona Diamondbacks' 6-3 win over the San Diego Padres, and Miguel Sano homered in a fourth straight game as the Minnesota Twins edged the Seattle Mariners 5-4.

Clayton Kershaw struck out 10 as the Los Angeles Dodgers recorded a 4-2 win over the New York Mets.

The Oakland Athletics overcame the Detroit Tigers 4-2, the Pittsburgh Pirates went down to the Texas Rangers 6-2, and the Milwaukee Brewers fought past the Cincinnati Reds 5-4.

The Washington Nationals crushed the St Louis Cardinals 10-2, the Baltimore Orioles were 6-4 victors over the Cleveland Indians, and the Boston Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-3 through 11 innings.

The San Francisco Giants brushed past the Colorado Rockies 8-3, and the Miami Marlins were 7-3 winners against the Atlanta Braves.


Sunday was a pretty good day to be a National League catcher. Milwaukee's Jonathan Lucroy went two-for-two with a triple, walk and three RBIs, and Buster Posey had three hits in San Francisco's win. But the Nationals' Wilson Ramos turned in the best performance, going three-for-three with a home run, four RBIs and two runs scored.


The Blue Jays' Jose Bautista went deep, but his team were beaten.


Jackie Bradley Jr. may have seen his 29-game hit streak come to an end on Thursday, but his Boston Red Sox team-mate still has a lengthy streak intact. Xander Bogaerts extended his hit streak to 22 games by going one-for-six.


The White Sox will send left-hander Jose Quintana (5-4, 2.22 ERA) to the mound, as he looks to snap a personal three-game losing streak. The Mets will counter with their own struggling starter in Matt Harvey. Harvey is 3-7 with a 6.08 ERA, but one of his best career outings was a one-hitter against the White Sox in 2013.
