Astros beat Yankees 6-2
HOUSTON — Jesús Guzmán and L.J. Hoes homered off CC Sabathia to help the Houston Astros roll to a 6-2 win Tuesday in the first game of Derek Jeter’s farewell tour with the New York Yankees.
Jeter’s final big league season began by being plunked on the left arm by Scott Feldman. The 13-time All-Star went 1 for 3 with a single.
Jeter, who has won five World Series with New York, announced in February that his 20th season would be his last.
The Astros added Dexter Fowler and Scott Feldman to improve a team coming off three straight 100-loss seasons. On the first day, it worked.
Fowler had two doubles as Houston jumped on Sabathia (0-1) for six runs in the first two innings. Feldman allowed two hits in 6 2-3 innings in his Houston debut after signing a three-year, US$30 million contract.
