HOUSTON — Xander Bogaerts hit two home runs to help the Red Sox rally past the Astros, 6-5 in Minute Maid Park Sunday, and earn two victories in the three-game series.


Red Sox starter David Price allowed two runs over the first five innings and was fortunate that was all as he put 11 men on base via hit, walk or hit by pitch. The Astros were 2 for 9 with runners in scoring position against Price.

Brian McCann had an RBI single in the first inning and Carlos Correa a home run in the fifth.

Lance Berkman’s upcoming speech at Cardinals 'Christian Day' draws ire from LGBTQ+ community

  Lance Berkman’s upcoming speech at Cardinals 'Christian Day' draws ire from LGBTQ+ community The St. Louis Cardinals are hosting “Christian Day” once again this year, but one of their speaker choices has some in the LGBQT+ community questioning the decision. Former Cardinals outfielder Lance Berkman will speak during the celebration. That's the same Lance Berkman who has condemned equal rights for LGBT people in Houston and called out a law that allowed transgendered people to use bathrooms that align with their gender identity. Naturally, the St. Louis Pride Center doesn’t think Berkman is the model spokesman.

Xander Bogaerts went deep twice for the first multihomer game of his career and had four RBIs to lead the Boston Red Sox to a 6-5 win over the Houston Astros on Sunday night. Edwin Encarnacion drove in every run for Cleveland on Sunday as the Indians held off the Twins 5-2 to complete a

Jaguars hold off Astros to win Guam Cal Ripken championship. The Red Sox came back and tied the game, 15-15 in the top of the fifth, but the Giants put a rally together, scoring three runs to break the tie and take the lead 18-15 into the top of the 6th.

Houston starter Joe Musgrove allowed one run over the first five innings, a home run by Bogaerts in the first inning. He went into the sixth inning having retired eight in a row then got Mookie Betts on a fly ball to left field.

A good start turned bad in a hurry. Dustin Pedroia drew a walk before Bogaerts hit an 0-and-2 pitch into the stands in left field.

After Hanley Ramirez singled and Andrew Benintendi walked, Astros manager A.J. Hinch replaced Musgrove with righthander James Hoyt.

Jackie Bradley Jr.’s double to right field drove in two runs, Benintendi hustling his way around. The Sox led, 5-2.

In all, the Sox sent eight men to the plate in the inning. With Price at 104 pitches and the bullpen fresh, it was time for a new pitcher. Heath Hembree, who had been warming up in the fifth inning, was ready.

Boston Red Sox ' Mookie Betts (50) celebrates his go-ahead solo home run off Houston Astros relief pitcher Will Harris with Xander Bogaerts during the eighth inning of a baseball game, Friday, June 16, 2017, in Houston.

Xander Bogaerts hit two home runs to help Boston hold off Houston to take two out of the three-game series.

But Sox manger John Farrell sent Price back to the mound, likely because Jake Marisnick was 0 for 2 on the night and 0 for 7 against Price in his career. But this time he hit a 454-foot home run to left center.

A batter too late, Farrell went to Hembree. His third pitch was hit deep to left field for another home run. That ended a streak of 26 consecutive scoreless innings by Red Sox relievers.

Hembree allowed two singles in the inning but managed to hold the lead.

The Sox took a 6-4 lead in an eventful top of the seventh inning.

Hoyt drilled Betts on the right knee with one out. Pedroia then got hit in the back and yelled at the pitcher, causing umpire Greg Gibson to issue a warning to both teams.

Farrell came out of the dugout to escort Pedroia to first base as the crowd booed. Houston replaced Hoyt with Chris Devenski. He tried to pick Betts off second and hit him in the right elbow.

Now doubly bruised, Betts stayed in the game and scored on a single by Bogaerts. When Betts crossed home plate, he high-fived Mitch Moreland with his left hand.

Brooks Koepka once admitted he finds golf ‘kind of boring,’ wishes he played baseball

  Brooks Koepka once admitted he finds golf ‘kind of boring,’ wishes he played baseball And now he's in the hunt for the U.S. OpenBut in the end, it was a good decision, right? No regrets from the man who spent his Sunday jostling for the lead of the U.S. Open, you'd probably think.

Mookie Betts showed off his defense and offense Friday night. Betts nailed George Springer at the plate to end the sixth before giving the Red Sox the lead for good two innings later. Betts hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning, sending the Boston Red Sox over the Houston Astros 2-1.

For the Boston Red Sox , Rick Porcello's performance has been pretty shocking, too. Altuve hit a solo homer, Beltran had a two-run shot and three RBIs, and the Astros beat the Red Sox 7-1. Altuve led off the third with his homer off the train tracks above the left-center field facade

Joe Kelly pitched a scoreless seventh inning, working around a leadoff double by Yuli Gurriel.
