New York Yankees: The Best Wins Of The First Half

5. 4/6/16- Bombers Rout Astros In Second Game Of 2016

This game is a prime example of what the Yankees offense is at its full potential.

New York defeated the Houston Astros in an epic 16-6 slugfest that production from almost every bat. Mark Teixeira sent a 3-run home run into the second deck in the third inning and Carlos Beltran slapped a long solo shot to left in the sixth.

Starlin Castro led the way, however, as he finished the day 4-for-5 with a run scored and five RBI. Three of those five came on a three-run blast to left-center in the bottom of the second.

Michael Pineda, who somehow wound up with the victory surrendered six runs on eight hits including three home runs over five innings of work. Thankfully, his offense bailed him out.
