HOUSTON (AP) David Robertson got the save as Mariano Rivera looked on, and the New York Yankees got a glimpse of their future in a 3-2 win over Houston on Friday night that sent the Astros to their team-record 13th consecutive loss.

David Adams hit a two-run double and Mark Reynolds also drove in a run for the Yankees, who stopped a four-game losing streak.

Houston dropped to 51-109, the most losses for a major league team since the 2004 Arizona Diamondbacks went 51-111.

The Astros' 322 losses over three seasons are the fifth-most in big league history according to STATS, ahead of only the 1962-64 New York Mets (340), the 1963-65 Mets (332), the 1915-17 Philadelphia Athletics (324) and the 1940-42 Philadelphia Phillies (323).
