NEW YORK (AP) -- Scott Feldman shut down the slumping New York Yankees again, and Robbie Grossman snapped a seventh-inning tie with a two-run single that sent the Houston Astros to a 5-2 victory Wednesday night.

Dexter Fowler had an RBI double, Jose Altuve added a run-scoring single, and the Astros (54-73) did more damage to New York's playoff chances with their fourth victory in five meetings this season. Houston, which has finished with the worst record in the majors each of the past three years, won a series at Yankee Stadium for the first time in four tries.

The fourth-place Astros improved to 4-7 in the Bronx and will go for a three-game sweep Thursday afternoon.

Stephen Drew hit his first homer for New York, and Jacoby Ellsbury drove in a run with a bunt single.
