The Houston Astros and the new york yankees played the second game of their three-game set after the Yankees witnessed firsthand the resurrection of Justin Verlander yesterday. The Astros had Charlie Morton (7-0 2.04 ERA) pitch against the Yankees' CC Sabathia (2-1 3.55 ERA). The New York Yankees were abysmal on the defensive side as they recorded FIVE errors, the most by a Yankee team in a single game since July 21, 2014, against the Texas Rangers. The Bronx Bombers attempted to fight their defensive woes, but with the timely hitting of Brett Gardner and Gleyber Torres, the Yankees were able to win 6-5 in 10 innings.

Game recap

The Astros made the top of the first interesting with runners on the corners with one out. Jose Altuve ran on the pitch, but it was a line drive to Aaron Judge, who was able to double up Altuve at first to end the inning and the scoring threat off of Sabathia. The bottom half of the inning saw Brett Gardner hit the second pitch of Morton's night over the right-field wall for his third homer of the season to give the Yankees a quick 1-0 lead.

The second inning saw both teams score again as in the top half of the inning Evan Gattis hit a solo home run into the left-field bleachers for his seventh on the season to make it a tie game. In the bottom of the second, the rookies made an impact as with two outs, Miguel Andujar hit a double to left center field and AL Player of the Week Gleyber Torres hit an RBI single to center field to give the Yankees a 2-1 lead.

In the top of the fourth inning with one out, Marwin Gonzalez hit a double to left-center that rolled to the warning track and allowed both runners to score and give the Astros the lead 3-2. The top of the fifth saw the Astros add another couple of runs starting with an RBI single to left field by Yuri Gurriel and then a sacrifice fly by Evan Gattis to give the Astros a couple of insurance runs to make it 5-2.

The Yankees were able to take back a run in the bottom half of the inning as the 2017 AL Rookie of the Year Aaron Judge hit his fifteenth homer of the season to right field to make it a 5-3 deficit.

Both bullpens were terrific holding the opposing lineups scoreless. The bottom of the ninth inning saw Chris Devenski pitch after closer Ken Giles has pitched the past two days.

The inning started off with a walk by Miguel Andujar to bring the tying run to the plate, but Gleyber Torres struck out swinging for the first out of the inning. Brett Gardner uses all of the short porch in right field to hit a game-tying two-run homer, his second of the game and the fourth of the year to make it a tie game. Aaron Judge hit a double to right field to put the winning run in scoring position, but the Yankees can't win it in regulation.

The top of the tenth inning saw closer Aaroldis Chapman throw 103 MPH fastball that bounces off the wall directly to catcher Gary Sanchez to throw out Tony Kemp trying to take third and the momentum felt it was entirely with the home team. The bottom of the inning saw rookie Miguel Andujar hit a double and Gleyber Torres hit a walk-off RBI single to right field to give the Yankees a 6-5 win in 10 innings.

This was the fifth time this season that the Yankees won a game when trailing after eight innings, which is the most in the American League.

Yankees horrific fielding

The Yankees had an issue defensively throughout the day. The game started off with second baseman Gleyber Torres unable to make the throw from second base and Greg Bird unable to scoop the ball that allowed the runner to advance to second base. Third baseman Miguel Andujar and starting pitcher CC Sabathia both had issues fielding a grounder in the top of the fifth inning and had to throw errors. Torres committed his second error of the game in the seventh inning attempting to field the baseball. Gary Sanchez attempted to make a snap throw to first base to pickoff J.D. Davis, but was not a good throw and allowed Davis to advance 90 feet for the team's fifth error of the evening. The team will need to be better defensively if they want to win more games.
