The Yankees overcame the Astros with home runs by Cabrera, Soto, and Volpe

The New York Yankees swept the series against the Houston Astros, winning all four games. In the fourth game at Minute Maid Park, the Yankees sealed their victory with a score of 4-3. After a less successful season, the Yankees are determined to regain their prominence and have started the 2024 season on the right foot.

The Astros started with an advantage.

Mauricio Dubón scored the first two runs for the Astros with a double in the second inning. The Honduran player hit Marcus Stroman’s pitch hard and sent it to deep right field, where Juan Soto could not field the ball properly. Yainer Díaz and Jeremy Peña were the Houston players who made it to home plate.

The Yankees failed to score on their merit, but rather, it was due to an error by José Abreu. After singles by Juan Soto and Aaron Judge, Rizzo hit a ground ball that the Astros’ first baseman could not control, allowing the Dominican to advance to home plate safely.

The Astros scored their third run thanks to a mistake by Anthony Volpe. Yordan Álvarez hit a ground ball to the shortstop, who tried to make a double play. However, his throw to first base went past Anthony Rizzo, allowing Victor Caratini to score calmly. Marcus Stroman could not make a proper play, and Alvarez advanced to third base.

The Yankees come back based on home runs.

Oswaldo Cabrera had not hit anything in his first three at-bats in the game. However, in the seventh inning, he made a great play by hitting a two-run home run. Bryan Abreu walked Austin Wells, and then Cabrera hit the ball out of right field to tie the game at three runs each.

Juan Soto was also impressive in the match. He hit the first home run with the Yankees jersey and did it quickly and efficiently. With two outs and a strike against him, Juan Soto smashed the ball to upper left field, helping the ‘Bronx Bombers take the lead on the scoreboard.
