(AP) Mark Reynolds hit a tiebreaking homer in a four-run 14th inning, and the New York Yankees went into an offseason of uncertainty Sunday with a 5-1 victory over the Houston Astros, whose 15-game losing streak was the longest at the end of the season in more than a century.


Mariano Rivera didn't pitch in the final game of a career that started in 1995, and Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson were among the players unsure whether they had played their final games for the Yankees (85-77).


Bothered by sore legs, Alex Rodriguez also didn't get into the game. The appeal of his 211-game drug suspension starts Monday.


New York finished with its fewest wins in a non-strike season since 1992 and failed to make the playoffs for only the second time in 19 years.


Houston (51-111) set a team record for losses and had the most in the majors since Arizona lost the same amount in 2004. The Astros finished with the lengthiest season-ending losing streak since the 1899 Cleveland Spiders dropped their last 16, according to STATS.
