HOUSTON (AP) — Yordan Álvarez homered twice off Carlos Carrasco as the Houston Astros jumped on him early and held on for a 5-3 win over the New York Mets. Álvarez hit two of the season-high three homers Carrasco allowed before the pitcher left with lower back tightness in the third inning with the Astros up 5-1. Álvarez, who also homered Tuesday night, now has 21 this season to move into a tie with Mike Trout for second-most in the majors behind Aaron Judge’s 27. His home run barrage in this series came after he missed Sunday’s game with a minor hand injury.
