Relief pitcher Lance McCullers pitched the final four innings and kept the Yankees at bay to seal the victory.Morton gave up only two hits with one walk and five strikeouts.Yankees starter Sabathia, who pitched six scoreless innings in the Yankees' game-three triumph, stranded five base runners over the first three innings and didn't make it out of the fourth. Aaron Judge, the rookie slugger who emerged as a star for the Yankees in his first major league season, made another stellar outfield catch to deny the Astros an early run.
