Bronx, NY (Sports Network) - Lucas Harrell spun 6 1/3 strong innings and batterymate Carlos Corporan went 4-for-5 with a homer and four RBI, with the duo leading Houston to a 9-1 shellacking of the New York Yankees that halted the Astros' nine-game road losing streak.

Harrell (3-2) also stopped Houston's four-game overall slide, while ending a string of four straight Yankee wins, by yielding just one run and scattering eight hits. Fourteen of the 19 outs the right-hander recorded came on the ground.

He was helped out by an offense that pounded out 17 hits and rocked Andy Pettitte (3-2) for seven runs in 4 1/3 innings of work. Brandon Barnes finished 3-for-5 with three RBI in the rout, with Carlos Pena contributing a run-scoring single as part of a 2-for-5 night.

Jose Altuve, Chris Carter and Brandon Laird also had two hits for Houston, which went 6-for-14 with runners in scoring position.

Vernon Wells, Brett Gardner and Robinson Cano each collected a pair of hits for New York, with Wells driving in the Yankees' lone run with a sixth-inning single.
