Astros 8, Red Sox 1

BOSTON — Jose Altuve hit his first grand slam after Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts made a mental gaffe on a play that would have ended an inning, and the Astros split the four-game series. Leading 2-0, Houston got a break in the second on Bogaerts' mistake. The shortstop picked up Marwin Gonzalez's grounder, ran to second for what looked like a force and fired to first — only he threw about a step before he tagged the bag. After a walk, Altuve homered into the Green Monster seats.
