Unfortunately, a lack of offense and bad outing from Junior Guerra wasted a prime opportunity for a win, Bumgarner started off the game rocky, allowing a leadoff single to George Springer, and an out later, a single to Alex Bregman. Bumgarner struck out Michael Brantley, and after Springer stole third, got Yuli Gurriel to ground into a force out to end the inning.
George Springer homered twice, including an inside-the-park shot, to lead the Houston Astros over the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-2 on Sunday. Carlos Correa drove in the go-ahead run for Houston with a sacrifice fly in the eighth inning. Springer’s two home runs gave him 13 this year.
Christian Walker singles to shallow center field. Pavin Smith to third. Kole Calhoun walks.
