HOUSTON (AP) — Brian Bogusevic drove in the go-ahead run after Jose Altuve scored on Jordan Pacheco’s throwing error to tie it in the eighth inning and the Houston Astros beat the Colorado Rockies 3-2 on Sunday.
Altuve singled with two outs in the eighth inning before J.D. Martinez hit sharp groundball that bounced off the glove of reliever Rex Brothers (0-1) for another single.
Pacheco’s bad throw to first base from third allowed Carlos Lee to reach and Altuve to score. Bogusevic’s grounder to right field put Houston ahead and chased Brothers.
Brothers’ breakdown spoiled a solid effort by Juan Nicasio in his return from a broken neck. He allowed five hits and one run in seven innings in his first start since breaking his neck when he fell after being hit in the head by a line drive on August 5.
