The New York Yankees fell into an early 3-0 hole on Thursday evening at Yankee Stadium in the series finale against the Houston Astros and couldn’t complete a comeback as they fell 4-3.

Despite the loss, New York (25-14) went 5-1 on the homestand and won six of seven against Houston (13-24) in the season series.

Anthony Volpe hit his fifth home run of the season, a two-run shot to put the Yankees on the board in the third inning. Aaron Judge crushed a 473-foot solo shot in the eighth to cut the deficit to one for the second time in the contest. Aside from that, the offense was silent as they went 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position, leaving seven on base.

Stroman ended up going 5.2 innings and allowing all four runs on nine hits. Luke Weaver, Dennis Santana, and Ron Marinaccio posted scoreless outings to give the team a chance to win.

Box Score

The Yankees will head to Tampa to open a three-game series with the Rays on Friday at 6:50 p.m.
