NEW YORK CITY, New York -- Carlos Corporan homered among his four hits and drove in four runs, Brandon Barnes three hits and three RBIs, and the Houston Astros fit comfortably into the role of a slugging American League squad Monday night in a 9-1 romp over the New York Yankees.

In their first game in the Bronx as an AL team, the Astros peppered Andy Pettitte for 10 hits and seven runs, both season highs for the lefty. Barnes and Corporan had two-run doubles and Barnes added an RBI single and a double. Barnes and Corporan each set career highs for hits and RBIs.

Houston bounced back from a four-game sweep in Boston with an enthusiastic win over the Yankees, who had just taken four straight from Toronto.

Lucas Harrell (3-2) kept New York grounded.
