The New York Yankees defeated the Houston Astros on Saturday night.  The game took place at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas and the final score was 1-0.  Gerrit Cole started for the Yankees and he was brilliant.  Aaron Judge hit a homerun to account for the only run of the game.

DJ LeMahieu had a hit, Judge had a hit and an RBI and Luke Voit had a hit and drew a walk.  Giancarlo Stanton drew a walk, Gleyber Torres had a hit and Gio Urshela had a hit.  Brett Gardner had a hit, Kyle Higashioka drew a walk and Torres hit a double.  Judge hit a homerun and the Yankees were 0-5 with runners in scoring position and left seven men on base.

In the third Judge hit a solo homerun and that would be the only scoring of the game.  The Yankees would hang on and win the ballgame 1-0.  They will go for the three-game sweep to close out the first half of the season on Sunday afternoon.
