The game was tied at 2-2 with one on and one out when Dubón smacked his double to right field off Sean Hjelle. Alex Bregman followed with an RBI single and later scored on a groundout by José Abreu. Jeremy Peña and Corey Julks also had run-scoring singles in the Astros’ big inning. Ryne Stanek, the fourth of six Houston pitchers, worked a scoreless seventh for the win. Astros starter Luis García departed with right elbow discomfort after throwing eight pitches.
