Astros top Rangers in 10th inning

Maybe this is a penance for all the lousy games these two teams played last year. For a second straight night at Globe Life Park, the Astros and Rangers went to extra innings Saturday night. Jose Altuve’s deep fly to right brought home pinch-runner Marwin Gonzalez with the tie-breaking run in a 6-5 win that took 10 innings. Jason Castro tripled with one out to right field off...
