Suarez helps Reds down Astros 4-2 in 11 innings
HOUSTON (AP) Eugenio Suarez hit a tiebreaking RBI double in the 11th inning, and the Cincinnati Reds held on for a 4-2 victory over the Houston Astros on Friday night.
Adam Duvall started the 11th with a single off Pat Neshek (2-1). He scored when the double by Suarez landed in the corner of left field, and the throw home rolled out of reach of catcher Jason Castro. The Reds added an insurance run on a sacrifice bunt by Ramon Cabrera with one out in the inning.
The game went to extra innings after a solo home by Houston's Carlos Correa knotted it up at 2-2 in the eighth.
Zack Cozart put Cincinnati up 1-0 with an RBI double in the fifth inning. Carlos Gomez tied it at 1-all with a run-scoring single in the sixth inning.
The Reds regained the lead when Billy Hamilton scored on a groundout by Jose Peraza in the seventh inning.
