Springer's tie-breaking homer leads Astros past Giants 4-3

HOUSTON (AP) - George Springer hit a tie-breaking solo homer in the eighth and the Houston Astros rallied past the San Francisco Giants 4-3 on Wednesday night.

Springer had come off the seven-day concussion disabled list prior to the game. He sent Jeremy Affeldt's (0-2) pitch over the yellow line in left-center. It was his lone hit and broke a 0 for 10 slump.

Chad Qualls (1-2) threw a perfect eighth for the win and Luke Gregerson pitched the ninth for his eighth save.

Buster Posey had three RBIs for the Giants.

Giants starter Tim Hudson allowed three runs on six hits in 5 1-3 innings.

Brett Oberholtzer lasted three innings in his first start of the year, allowing one run on five hits with three strikeouts before leaving with a blister on his left hand.
