From Kristie Rieken from the A sociated Pre s:HOUSTON (AP) The Yankees blew an earlier six-run lead on Saturday from the Astros. Then they put their heads down and got to work.Brian McCann hit a great slam and Chris Young homered to provide New York an early lead, and Mark Teixeira had a tiebreaking two-run double within the eighth following the Yankees squandered that cushion inside a 9-6 win.It was one of those old-fashioned slugfests, Teixeira said. Whoever was going to get the succe s after the game would win, so we Philly Brown Jersey did.McCanns slam arrived the first. A two-run shot by Young, a Houston native, that extended his hitting streak to a career-high 10 games, in the second off Houston starter Brett Oberholtzer place the Yankees up 6-0.Oberholtzer was ejected with one out in the second inning for throwing at Alex Rodriguez and also the Astros got going on offense next. Chris Carter and George Springer each drove inside a run within the second before Carter homered in the fourth to chop it to 6-3.Oberholtzer was optioned to Triple-A Fresno following the game.Both managers were unhappy with Oberholtzers actions.I think its a child getting frustrated, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. I definitely think he threw at Alex. You dont need to see that. Weve seen it before and you just move on.When asked if Oberholtzer was sent down because of the incident, Houston manager A.J. Hinch said it played a job in the move, but that they also needed another arm in the bullpen for Sundays game.We dont operate that way, we wont operate this way, Hinch said. Its not really a reflection of anybody around here, including Obie.Oberholtzer denied intentionally throwing at Rodriguez and thinks the problem Jim Kelly Jersey escalated due to his superstar status.Rookie Carlos Correa hit a two-run homer in the fifth and Jose Altuve connected around the next at-bat to tie up.Brett Gardner walked to begin the eighth before Young reached on the fielders choice and Gardner advanced to second with an error by Altuve. Houston challenged the call at second, however it was upheld. Teixeira then doubled off Pat Neshek (3-1) with one in the inning to put New York back on the top.Chasen Shreve (5-1) got the last two outs from the seventh inning for that win and Dellin Betances threw a scorele s ninth for his sixth save.Chase Headleys solo homer off Tony Sipp within the ninth pushed the lead to 9-6.Correa, the very best pick within the 2012 draft, had three hits and finished a triple shy from the cycle.Masahiro Tanaka had another tough start after tying career highs in hits (10) and runs (seven) and allowing a personal-worst three home runs in his last start. On Kolby Listenbee Jersey Saturday, he again gave up three homers while yielding seven hits and six runs in five innings.I just consider it as a rough start and weve got to iron it out, Girardi said. Well get it fixed. We all know what hes able to do.Springer walked with no outs in the fifth before Correa hit his fifth homer to obtain Houston to 6-5.Altuve connected off Tanaka two pitches later, launching an 84 mph slider into the Crawford Boxes in left field to tie up.Oberholtzers day quickly went wrong. Gardner hit a leadoff double before consecutive walks by Young and Rodriguez loaded the bases. McCanns one-out shot landed in Max Valles Jersey the second deck in right field to really make it 4-0.Gardner doubled with one out in the second before Youngs 10th homer pushed the lead to 6-0.Oberholtzers next pitch was inside on Rodriguez on and A-Rod jumped taken care of to avoid being hit. Oberholtzer was immediately ejected as Rodriguez stood at the plate together with his hand on his left hip and Girardi held back pitcher CC Sabathia as he came out of the dugout yelling at Oberholtzer and both dugouts were warned.Oberholtzer stomped to the dugout where he threw his glove from the wall and knocked over some paper cups in anger. He allowed four hits, six runs and walked three in the shortest start of season.TRAINERS ROOMAstros: RHP Scott Feldman, who had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on May 29, faced a few hitters throwing from the mound on Saturday and manager A.J. Hinch said he looked good. Hinch said hell do a more aggre sive live bullpen se sion in a couple of days. OF Colby Rasmus was scratched in the lineup with a skin infection, but Hinch said he should Ikemefuna Enemkpali Jersey return Sunday.Yankees: CF Jacoby Ellsbury, out since May 19 having a sprained right knee, was at Houston on Saturday to work out therefore the team can gauge wheres hes at in his recovery. Girardi said hell work out on Sunday before they determine if hes ready for a rehabilitation a signment.UP NEXTNew Yorks Michael Pineda (8-4) looks to bounce back after struggling in the last start when he opposes Collin McHugh (8-3) in the finale from the series. Pineda allowed 11 hits and eight runs both career highs in a lo s to Philadelphia on Monday. McHugh has won two consecutively.A sociated Pre s photos
