Chirinos' sacrifice fly in 9th lifts Rangers past Astros

HOUSTON (AP) - Robinson Chirinos hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the ninth inning, and the Texas Rangers snapped Houston's 10-game winning streak with a 2-1 win over the Astros on Monday night.

Chirinos' sacrifice fly to center scored Adrian Beltre, who led off the inning with a double off Chad Qualls (0-2), moved to third on Kyle Blanks' single and slid in as Jake Marisnick's throw to the plate went to the backstop.

Keone Kela (2-1) pitched the eighth for the win, and Neftali Feliz pitched the ninth for his third save.

Houston scored in the first as Jose Altuve and George Springer drew walks, worked a double steal and Altuve scored on Evan Gattis' sacrifice fly to make it 1-0.

Jake Smolinski tied it in the eighth with a one-out RBI single to center.
