To help this cause, catcher Jorge Posada hit a grand slam: in two straight games.
Robinson Cano also chipped in, by hitting a solo home run. This was a small milestone for the young second baseman, as the home run was his 100th.
Starter Phil Hughes wasn't much impressive, as he allowed 5 runs in 5 2/3 innings, but he still picked up the win.
Utility man Ramiro Pena replaced Alex Rodriguez in the lineup. He was just as productive as a starter, with 2 RBIs.
Outfielder Brett Gardner slapped 2 hits, raising his batting average to .317.
New rookie Chad Huffman also played and got his first big league hit.
This was a great three game series for the Yankees, as they swept the Astros at home. Because of the fact that the Yankees have struggled for a while in May, this series might get them back on track.
With an eight game win streak at home, things look bright as ever for the Bronx Bombers.
