Red Sox Edge Past Astros, 2-1
The Red Sox grabbed a win, 2-1, at Minute Maid Park, overcoming a fine effort from Houston pitcher Kevin Helms. Helms went 5 innings and allowed 1 earned run. Boston reliever Greg Johnson picked up the win to move to 2-2. José Bautista suffered the loss. Boston is 27-30 and Houston, with the loss, 23-35.

A crucial at-bat came with a runner on 2nd and two out in the top of the seventh inning. That's when designated hitter Steve Elliott, who is tied for 7th in the AL in total bases with 116, drew a walk. The Red Sox went on to win.

"I tell our guys all the time, 'Every pitch is the right pitch if you put it in the right place, you believe in it and have conviction,'" Boston manager said.
