Astros start fast; beat Red Sox 7-3 for 10th straight win

BOSTON (AP) — Tyler White’s two-run double capped a five-run first inning, Josh Reddick hit a solo homer and the Houston Astros kept rolling, beating the Boston Red Sox 7-3 Saturday night for their 10th straight victory.

Michael Brantley had three hits and an RBI for Houston (31-15), which matched the best start in franchise history — along with the 2017 World Series winning team — after 46 games.

Christian Vázquez hit a solo homer for the Red Sox, who had won six of eight.

The Astros can complete a three-game series sweep Sunday when they send left-hander Wade Miley against Boston ace Chris Sale.
