Astros Saddle Rays with 11-7 Loss
The Houston Astros overcame a good performance by Tampa Bay left fielder Manuel Castillo to knock off Tampa Bay, 11-7, at Minute Maid Park. Castillo was 3-4 with a home run and 2 doubles, while scoring 2 runs and driving in 2. The winner was Johnny Cueto, who threw 89 pitches over 5.2 innings. The right-hander was charged with 6 runs on 10 hits. Craig Kimbrel sewed up the save, his 37th.

Houston took the lead with no one out in the bottom of the second when Norberto García stroked a bases-clearing double. That made the score 3-0 in favor of Houston. For the day, García was 1 for 3 with a double, while adding 3 RBI and scoring once.

"It's nice to come out on top today," said García.

The first-place Astros are now 95-67, the Rays 70-92.
