Singleton, Astros defeat sloppy Indians

CLEVELAND (AP) Jon Singleton's homer capped a four-run ninth inning and the Houston Astros took advantage of Cleveland's sloppy defense to defeat the Indians 5-1 on Friday night.

Singleton hit a three-run drive off Cody Allen (4-3) after a pair of throwing errors by the worst defensive team in the majors. 

The Indians lead the majors with 99 errors, but their poor play wasn't limited to defense. Cleveland had runners on first and second with no outs in the eighth before shoddy baserunning ended the threat.
