It was an electric atmosphere at Minute Maid Park as just under 32,000 fans took in the Astros and Yankees. Houston fans got to enjoy another stellar outing from Collin McHugh, as the Astros won 3-1.

McHugh shut down the Yankees, allowing just two hits and two walks. Along the way, a very symmetrical eight strikeouts for eight innings.

It has been an impressive run for Collin McHugh turning to form, allowing just three runs over his last two outings. McHugh has struggled for much of this season, he still has a 6.00 ERA in the month of June.

On the offensive side, Carlos Correa tied up the game with a little league home run -- rounding the bases after two Yankees outfielders allowed a ball to drop in left-center. Brett Gardner wasn't able to get the ball in until Correa was rounding third.

Correa doubled in the seventh and scored on a Evan Gattis triple -- it was Gattis' third triple this season. Jason Castro brought home in an insurance run in the eight with a sacrifice fly scoring Preston Tucker.

The Astros split the four-game series with the Yankees and now face the American League Champion Royals for three starting monday.
