HOUSTON (AP) Jackie Bradley Jr. lined a tie-breaking RBI single in the 12th inning after Houston's Colby Rasmus hit a tying two-run homer off closer Craig Kimbrel in the ninth, and the Boston Red Sox beat the Astros 7-5 on Sunday night.
Bradley singled with the bases loaded off Ken Giles (0-2). It was the first run the Red Sox had scored since Bradley belted the second of back-to-back RBI doubles with Ryan Hanigan in the third. Hanigan preceded Bradley's 12th-inning hit with a 13-pitch walk.
Mookie Betts grounded into a force at home, and then Giles uncorked a wild pitch that allowed Hanigan to score.
