HOUSTON -- Chris Young had a go-ahead, three-run homer among three hits in his hometown, lifting the New York Yankees to a 3-2 win over the Houston Astros on Friday night.
Nathan Eovaldi (7-2), another Houston native, yielded five hits and two runs with six strikeouts in six innings to give him a career-high seven wins.
New York managed just three hits through the first six innings and trailed 2-0 before Carlos Beltran and Garrett Jones had back-to-back singles with one out in the seventh to chase Houston rookie starter Vince Velasquez.
He was replaced by Will Harris (4-1), who was greeted with Young's shot to the Crawford Boxes in left field to put the Yankees on top.
Young, who extended his season-long hitting-streak to nine games Friday, has nine homers, 33 RBI and 14 multihit games in 25 career games at Minute Maid Park.
Carlos Correa had a run-scoring single in the third inning for Houston and an RBI single by Evan Gattis made it 2-0 in the sixth.
