Astros ace Cole faces former Pirates teammates

The desperation was palpable. The Astros had dropped seven straight entering Sunday's series finale with the New York Yankees and faced the possibility of a winless road trip and the specter of carrying negative vibes back to Houston.

Instead, the Astros walloped four home runs, cruised to a 9-4 win that clinched the season series against the Yankees, and returned home set to embrace an off day before hosting the Pittsburgh Pirates for a three-game interleague set starting Tuesday.

With their season-worst skid in the rearview mirror, the Astros are betting that their triumph Sunday gets them back on track toward winning 100-plus games for a third consecutive season.
