Yankees 3, Astros 0

NEW YORK -- Brandon McCarthy continued his resurgence by firing a four-hitter as New York salvaged the finale of a three-game series with Houston.

Chase Headley had a two-run double and Ichiro Suzuki lifted a sacrifice fly for the Yankees, who won for the third time in 10 games and snapped a four-game home losing streak.

Those runs were enough for McCarthy (5-2), who lost his first two games with New York after his teammates were unable to score against Cleveland and Tampa Bay. McCarthy threw 79 of 107 pitches for strikes.
