Big Papi puts on a show, lifts Red Sox over Astros in 11th

David Ortiz hit a winning double with two outs in the 11th inning after lining a tying triple in the ninth and earlier moving into 20th place on the career home run list, sending the Boston Red Sox past the Houston Astros 6-5 on Saturday.

Boston's Jackie Bradley Jr. singled in the first inning, extending the majors' longest hitting streak to 20 games.

George Springer hit a grand slam and Carlos Correa a solo homer for the Astros.

Ortiz broke a tie with Ernie Banks and Eddie Mathews with his 513th homer.

Houston led 5-4 with two outs in the ninth when Ortiz hit an RBI triple just past diving center fielder Jake Marisnick. After sliding into third, 40-year-old Big Papi got up and pumped both fists toward his dugout following his first triple since June 15, 2013.

In the 11th, Xander Bogaerts singled with two outs against Michael Feliz (1-1) and advanced on a wild pitch before Ortiz hit a drive off the base of the center-field wall for his 600th career double.
