New York Yankees win Game 5 to survive and head to Houston

The New York Yankees defeated the Houston Astros in Game 5 on Friday night.  The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York and the final score was 4-1.  James Paxton started for the Yankees and he pitched very well.  The Yankees offense struck all in the first inning led by Aaron Hicks three-run homerun. 

Paxton pitched six innings giving up four hits and a run with four walks and nine strikeouts.  Paxton earned the win.  Tommy Khanle pitched 1/3 of an inning giving up a hit and a walk, Zack Britton pitched 1 2/3 innings with two strikeouts and Aroldis Chapman earned his first save of the season pitching an inning with a strikeout. 

Justin Verlander pitched seven innings giving up five hits and four runs with no walks and nine strikeouts.  Verlander took the loss and Brad Peacock pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout. 

DJ LeMahieu had a hit and an RBI, Aaron Judge had a hit and Gleyber Torres had a hit.  Hicks had a hit and three RBI, Didi Gregorius had a hit and Torres hit a double.  LeMahieu and Hicks each hit a homerun and the Yankees were 1-2 with runners in scoring position and left one man on base.  Sanchez had a passed ball. 

George Springer had two hits, Jose Altuve drew two walks and Michael Brantley drew a walk.  Alex Bregman had a hit, Carlos Correa had a hit and drew two walks and Jake Marisnick had a hit.  The Astros were 0-6 with runners in scoring position and left nine men on base. 

In the first a wild pitch gave the Astros a 1-0 lead.  In the bottom of the first LeMahieu hit a solo homerun to tie the game and Hicks hit a three-run homerun giving the Yankees a 4-1 lead and that would be the final score. 

The two teams will play game six on Saturday night in Houston.
