Bogaerts hits 2 homers to lead Red Sox over Astros 6-5

19 June 2017

Altuve led off the third with his home run off the train tracks above the left-center field facade, and Beltran followed three batters later with his ninth home run of the season to put Houston ahead 6-0.

"One step closer to that probably", Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. Altuve managed to put twos across the board with a homer and Correa had a hit with a run. Altuve had an RBI double, and Brian McCann and Beltran followed with sacrifice flies.

"They're good hitters", Musgrove said. It's just that location is what makes his sinker his sinker. "But we'll have a better read once he goes through the exam here at the local hospital". He allowed two hits and one run while striking out a season-high 10 in 4 2/3 innings in his last start. I think they will need more than that today to win. He cuts the ball on occasion and right up to the very end he did a good job. "I got to make it back to making them uncomfortable". Last year's AL Cy Young Award victor lost his fourth consecutive - his second four-game losing streak this season - and has allowed five or more runs in three consecutive outings. "Still, for Rick, once again, the night and day difference is elevation in the strike zone", Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "It wasn't pitched tight". Bogaerts made it count with a hard-hit ground ball up the middle.

Yuli Gurriel scored on Norichika Aoki's double play in the sixth to give the Astros a 7-1 lead.

Price (2-1) got the win despite tying a season high by allowing eight hits with three runs and three walks in five-plus innings. "But I feel like the American League this year has a lot of shortstops playing a lot of good baseball". It wasn't until Correa led off the fifth inning with his homer that Houston capitalized on the opportunities. No need to remember your password or log in, just click.

Bogaerts now has four home runs this season - by this time past year he had nine - but even without going deep almost as often, his OPS is better still than it was last season when he won his second straight Silver Slugger at a deep shortstop position.

INDIANS 9-6, TWINS 3-2 Jose Ramirez homered twice, doubled and drove in four runs as visiting Cleveland beat the Twins in the first game of a day-night doubleheader.

The over is 5-1 in the Red Sox' last six Sunday games, and Boston is 4-1 in their last five games versus a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30. Lance McCullers Jr. will throw a bullpen session Monday or Tuesday, keeping open the possibility of him starting a game in Seattle. "There's still some things he needs to do in order to satisfy everyone that he's ready to start, but certainly the initial goal would for him to start on the road trip", Hinch said.

The Red Sox are 10-4 in their last 14 Sunday games, and 12-5 in their last 17 during game three of a series.

What has been a laborious stretch of pitcher injuries appears to be nearing an end for the Astros, who will embark on a seven-game, West Coast road trip starting Monday in Oakland with three now disabled starters in tow.

Joe Kelly (3-0) got two outs for the win.
