The go-ahead runs came for the visitors in the ninth on a wild pitch uncorked by Keaton Steele. Combined with a throwing error by catcher Brett Doe on the play, the Astros were up 4-2.

Antonio Nunez was the go-ahead run and reached on a walk followed by a ground-ball single to right from Ydarqui Marte. Later on that duo scored the game’s deciding runs.
