George Springer’s bases-loaded double in the bottom of the eighth inning scored two runs to break a 3-3 tie and give the Astros (7-5) their fifth straight victory.

Springer’s hit off Yankees reliever Chad Green decided a game in which the Astros had baserunners in every inning except the first, collected 11 hits and drew five walks.
