Astros turn 1st triple play since 2004, beat Tigers
Lance McCullers got Ian Kinsler to ground into a triple play in the fifth inning, and the Houston right-hander went on to earn his first career victory Saturday, leading the Astros over the Detroit Tigers 3-2.
Detroit led 2-1 in the fifth and had runners on first and second when Kinsler hit a grounder to third. Jonathan Villar stepped on the bag and threw to second, where Jose Altuve relayed the ball to first.
It was Houston's first triple play since 2004, and the Astros followed that up by scoring two runs in the sixth to go ahead.
McCullers (1-0) allowed two runs and six hits with six strikeouts over six innings in his second career start.
The Houston bullpen did not allow a baserunner. Luke Gregerson pitched the ninth for his 11th save in 12 chances.
Kyle Lobstein (3-5) gave up three runs in 5 2-3 innings.
