G38: Red Sox 10, Astros 9

Astros  - 031 023 000 -  9  8  2
Red Sox - 242 000 20x - 10 14  3
A see-saw affair at the Fens.

Boston led 2-0, trailed 3-2, led 6-3 and 8-4, trailed 9-8, and finally came out on top 10-9. It was Mookie Betts's triple that brought home Ryan Hanigan with the go-ahead run in the seventh.

Hanigan, Josh Rutledge, and Hanley Ramirez each had three hits. ... Hanigan drove in four runs and Xander Bogaerts hit a three-run homer. ... Rutledge also scored three runs. ... Jackie Bradley extended his hitting streak to 21 games.

The Tigers beat the Orioles, so the Red Sox are back in a tie with Baltimore for first place in the AL East.
