In the final series of the 2013 season, the Yankees wanted to end the season on the right foot and the Yankees did just that in a 3-2 victory over the Houston Astros Friday night.
The Yankees scored all three of their runs in the fourth inning of the game, taking the three runs on a RBI single by Mark Reynolds, who advanced to second on a throwing error and a two run double by David Adams, which plated both Alfonso Soriano and Reynolds.
Adam Warren was tabbed as the starter this evening, and Joe Girardi initially felt that Warren was only going to go three innings. Warren went a little farther, going five innings and pitching no run baseball. David Phelps came in and pitched the sixth and the first two outs of the seventh. Joba Chamberlain came on, giving up the two inherited runners on base before getting the final out of the inning. Preston Claiborne pitched a perfect eighth and David Robertson came on for the save and pitched a perfect 1, 2, 3 ninth.
