The woes of New York’s rotation continue. The Astros punished Ray Caldwell for seven runs in just three innings. Houston piled up 17 hits in the game, including at least one from each batter and three apiece from Jose Cruz and Cesar Cedeno.

Lou Gehrig pulled back into a share of the home run lead.

New York finally got a good start, this time from Roger Clemens, who bounced back after several tough outings in a row. Gehrig walked twice, tripled, and dingered again to reclaim the home run lead all for himself.

Houston and New York split their six games for the season.
