Astros Outlast Rangers 3-2


Gerrit Cole struck out a career-high 14 batters as the Astros clipped the Rangers 3-2 in Houston.  Cole tossed seven innings of two  run ball, but Joe Smith got credit for the win while Chris Devenski  notched the save.  George Springer homered twice and Derek Fisher scored  the game-winning run on an eighth inning error by Drew Robinson.  The Astros snapped a two-game slide and improved to 10-and-4.  Joey Gallo and  Robinson Chirinos homered for Texas, while Kevin Jepsen dropped to  0-and-2 after he allowed the winning run.  The Rangers have lost five  in-a-row as they dropped to 4-and-11 overall.
