HOUSTON (AP) — Rookie Yangervis Solarte had three hits in his first major league start and Derek Jeter drove in a run to give the New York Yankees their first win this season, 4-2 over the Houston Astros on Thursday night.

Solarte singled during a two-run third inning that put New York up 2-1. He doubled in the fifth and scored on a single by Jeter to make it 3-1.
