Springer HR, 4 RBIs as Astros end Boston's 5-game win streak
George Springer homered off former UConn teammate Matt Barnes and drove in four runs, leading the Houston Astros over the Red Sox 7-6 Friday night and ending Boston's five-game winning streak.
Springer's two-run drive over the Green Monster against Barnes (2-2) broke a 5-all tie in the sixth inning.
Jose Altuve got three hits, scored twice and drove in a run for Houston. Marwin Gonzalez added two RBIs for the Astros.
Jackie Bradley Jr. got three hits for the Red Sox and extended the longest hitting streak in the majors this season to 19 games.
Boston's string of four straight games with at least 11 runs and 14 hits also came to an end. Boston got 11 hits, but scored just once after tagging Lance McCullers for five runs in the second.
Scott Feldman (2-2) won in relief. He gave up Travis Shaw's homer to straightaway center to start the sixth.
Luke Gregerson struck out two in the ninth while picking up his eighth save.
