BOSTON (AP) - First baseman Mike Napoli allowed Preston Tucker's hard grounder to bounce past him for an error, and Carlos Correa followed with a tiebreaking single in a four-run 10th inning that lifted the Houston Astros over the Boston Red Sox on Friday night for their fifth straight win.

Jose Altuve had three hits and two RBIs for the AL West-leading Astros, who won after wasting three leads in four innings.

Noe Ramirez (0-1), making his major league debut, hit Altuve with a pitch leading off the 10th, and Altuve took third on Napoli's error.

Correa singled for a 9-8 lead, Jon Singleton added a two-run single and Domingo Santana stole home on the back end of a double steal.

Roberto Hernandez (3-5) pitched a perfect inning, and Luke Gregerson got the final three outs.
