CLEVELAND (AP) -- Rookie Jose Ramirez's ninth-inning single lifted the Cleveland Indians to a 3-2 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night.

Pinch-hitter Tyler Holt started the inning with a single off Jake Buchanan (1-3). After Roberto Perez moved Holt to second with a sacrifice, Michael Bourn walked. Buchanan's wild pitch moved the runners to second and third before Ramirez lined a 3-2 pitch past third base for the win.

The Indians have 10 walk-off wins this season. Cody Allen (5-3) struck out two in a perfect ninth.

Astros starter Collin McHugh allowed two runs in 5 1-3 innings.

The Astros have won four of five and improved to 5-3 on a trip in which they split four against Boston and took two of three from the Yankees.
