Chris Carter's 30th homer a big one
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Astros designated hitter Chris Carter continued his hot-hitting ways Tuesday, as he slugged the team to a 7-4 victory over the Yankees.

Carter was hitless with four strikeouts heading into the ninth inning, but made up for that with one swing. With the score tied at 4-4, Carter unleashed a three-run blast to put the Astros up for good.

Carter has established a new career-high with his 30th home run of the season, and he has 72 RBI to go with that, just 10 off his best total. He is hitting .233/.301/.519 in 110 games overall.

Brett Oberholtzer has a rough outing against Yankees
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer had a tough outing Tuesday against the Yankees.

Oberholtzer allowed four runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings. He struck out seven and walked one. Oberholtzer turned in three scoreless innings before Brian McCann took him deep for a two-run shot in the third inning. The Astros managed to give Oberholtzer a lead in the sixth, but he couldn’t hold on. Oberholtzer gave up a leadoff single to lead off the bottom of the frame. That base-runner advanced to second on a balk. Oberholtzer then walked Carlos Beltran, and gave up a two-run double against Martin Prado, tying the game at four. He was replaced by Tony Sipp.

Oberholtzer will take on the Indians in his next start.

Jesse Crain able to throw off a mound
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Astros reliever Jesse Crain has been able to throw off a mound, according to MLB.com.

Crain is recovering after biceps surgery he had last October. He's had a number of setbacks, which have sidelined him until now. He's been able to throw fastballs and changeups off a mound thus far, and is hoping to do more soon. "I'll keep on grinding away and see what happens," Crain said. "For the last two weeks, I've been feeling pretty good." 

Crain is hoping to start throwing breaking balls soon. Once he's able to do that, he would progress to facing live hitters. He's hoping to progress over the next couple of weeks so that he can pitch for the club this season. "There's going to be a bunch of reasons for me to get out there," Crain said. "Hopefully, time doesn't run out."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Astros outfielder George Springer took batting practice Tuesday.

Springer has been attempting to come back from a knee issue. He was able to take batting practice and stretch on the field prior to Tuesday's game. It's unclear when the club expects him to return to action. He's been out since July 19 due to the injury.
