Astros 5, Cardinals 2
ST. LOUIS — Doug Fister pitched effectively into the eighth inning and gave the Astros breathing room with a two-run single in the seventh. Former Cardinal Colby Rasmus hit his 150th career homer in his first game back in St. Louis since 2011. Fister had been 0-for-2 on the season before hitting the first pitch from reliever Seung Hwan Oh up the middle for a three-run lead. Matt Adams and Brandon Moss homered for the Cardinals, whose season-best five-game winning streak ended.
