Astros rally for 6-4 win over Blue Jays

HOUSTON (AP) - Jonathan Villar's two-run double put Houston on top in a four-run seventh inning and the Astros beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-4 on Thursday night.

Rookie Preston Tucker's RBI double off Aaron Loup (1-2) with no outs in the seventh brought the Astros within 4-3. Villar's groundball double down the right field line scored two more to give Houston the lead. The Blue Jays intentionally walked Jose Altuve with one out before he stole second and Josh Thole's error on the play allowed Villar to add an insurance run.

Loup's blown save ruined a solid start by Drew Hutchison, who allowed five hits and two runs with a season-high nine strikeouts in six innings.

Josh Fields (2-0) got the last two outs of the seventh for the win and Chad Qualls struck out one in a perfect ninth for his fourth save.
