The Houston Astros defeated Philadelphia 6-4 to snap the Phillies’ season-high seven-game winning streak and drop Philadelphia to 4 games back in the National League wild-card race.
Houston, which has the worst record in the majors (46-98), took the lead with a two-out rally in the eighth. Dominguez walked, and pinch hitter Scott Moore was hit by a pitch from Phillippe Aumont (0-1). Lowrie, another pinch hitter, followed with a two-run double to the right-center gap off Jake Diekman.
Philadelphia entered Thursday’s game leading the majors in both stolen-base percentage (82.9 percent) and in catchers’ caught-stealing rate (39 percent). The Phillies stole two bases without being caught, and Kratz threw out one of three Astros who attempted to steal bases.
