HOUSTON, Texas (AP) -- Dexter Fowler homered and tripled and Matt Dominguez added a home run late to help the Houston Astros take the opening series from the New York Yankees with a 3-1 win on Wednesday night.

Houston won the opener 6-2 and put a damper on the first series of Derek Jeter's final season. Jeter was 0 for 3 with a walk and a strikeout.

Fowler's leadoff homer put Houston up and he scored the second run after his triple in the third.

The Yankees scored in the seventh before the Astros added an insurance run with Dominguez's homer in the bottom half.

Jarred Cosart (1-0) allowed four hits in five scoreless innings and Josh Fields pitched a perfect ninth for the save.

Hiroki Kuroda (0-1) yielded three hits and two runs with five strikeouts in six innings.
