The New York Yankees (68-69) swept the Houston Astros (77-61) on Sunday night at Minute Maid Park for the first time in 10 years with a 6-1 victory.

New York trailed 1-0 for the first five innings but scored six unanswered runs, led by Jasson Domínguez’s second Major League home run, a go-ahead two-run shot in the sixth.

Austin Wells, Oswald Peraza, and DJ LeMahieu added run-scoring doubles while Gleyber Torres crushed his 24th homer.

Michael King tossed five innings of one-run ball while striking out four. The right-hander has allowed just one run in his last three outings.

Tommy Kahnle (2.0 IP), Jonathan Loáisiga (1.0 IP), and Clay Holmes (1.0 IP) posted scoreless appearances.

The Yankees will get the day off Monday before they begin a six-game homestand, starting with three against the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday at 7:05 p.m.
