Astros 3, Blue Jays 1

HOUSTON — Gregorio Petit's first career homer put the Astros ahead during the eighth inning and helped end the Blue Jays' six-game win streak. The game was tied at 1 when Petit, 29, who has played only 29 major-league games since 2008, launched Aaron Loup's first pitch to leftfield to make it 2-1. Jose Altuve connected on the next pitch for a ground-rule double. He stole third and scored on Robbie Grossman's sacrifice fly.
