Altuve's RBI single in 10th lifts Astros past Mariners
Jose Altuve's RBI single in the 10th inning lifted the Houston Astros to their seventh straight victory, 3-2 over the Seattle Mariners on Thursday night.
Marwin Gonzalez doubled down the right-field line with one out against reliever Dominic Leone (0-2). After a walk to pinch-hitter Colby Rasmus, Altuve got his third hit of the game -- lining a single to left field to drive in Gonzalez with his first career walk-off hit.
Luke Gregerson (2-0) pitched a scoreless 10th to pick up the win.
The Mariners took a 2-0 lead in the first inning on Nelson Cruz's double-play grounder with the bases loaded, and Kyle Seager's RBI single.
Evan Gattis had a run-scoring grounder in the bottom of the inning, and then had another in the sixth to tie the score.
Astros starter Scott Feldman settled in after a shaky first to go seven innings. Houston needed an extended outing from its starter to avoid complications with the rotation and Feldman's outing allowed the team to rest long reliever Samuel Deduno for Friday's start.
Feldman gave up the two runs and eight hits, striking out two and walking two.
James Paxton also went seven strong innings for Seattle. He gave up two runs and five hits while striking out seven and walking two.
Astros: SS Jed Lowrie, who tore a ligament in his right thumb in Monday's win at San Diego, will have surgery Friday in Houston. He is expected back after the All-Star break. ... LHP Brett Oberholtzer, sidelined with a blister on his left index finger, made his first official injury rehab assignment for Triple-A Fresno.
Astros: RHP Samuel Deduno (0-0-1, 2.89 ERA), who had his first career save on April 12 at Texas, starts in the second game of this weekend series. Deduno is 16-17 with a 4.43 ERA in 42 career starts.
Mariners: LHP Roenis Elias (0-0, 3.85 ERA) will make his second start of the season since being called up from Triple-A Tacoma on April 26.
