HOUSTON (AP) — Jason Castro hit a two-run homer and Chris Carter had a tiebreaking infield RBI single in the eighth inning Saturday, lifting the Houston Astros to a 3-2 win over the Boston Red Sox.

Jose Altuve doubled to open the eighth, chasing Red Sox starter Jake Peavy (1-8). Altuve advanced to third on a groundout before George Springer was intentionally walked and Jon Singleton struck out.

Carter then hit a grounder off Junichi Tazawa to shortstop Brock Holt. Springer just beat Holt's throw to second in a force attempt, allowing Altuve to score.

Josh Fields (2-4) pitched 1 2-3 scoreless innings for the win and Chad Qualls got two outs for his 10th save. The Astros turned a double play to end the game and Boston challenged the play at first, but it was upheld.
