Then came to mark Jose Altuve, who would bring the score in the final count with a solo homer, in seventh.

After singles from Kyle Tucker and Yuli Gurriel, Jose Siri broke the tie with an infield single.
Martin Maldonado pushed two runners to plate with a single, then Michael Brantley made it 5-1 with another single.
