HOUSTON (AP) — Alex Bregman had two hits and an RBI in his first action in more than two months, and he scored the winning run in the 10th inning on a groundout by Jake Meyers to lift the Houston Astros to a 6-5 win over the Kansas City Royals.
Kyle Tucker singled with no outs in the 10th to send automatic runner Bregman to third.
Meyers then hit a comebacker that struck pitcher Joel Payamps and pulled him toward first base.
Payamps tossed the ball to first for the meaningless out as Bregman slid home.
Whit Merrifield hit a grand slam in the seventh inning for the Royals.
