Bradley, Bosox win in 12 vs Astros after Kimbrel blows save

HOUSTON (AP) - Jackie Bradley Jr. lined a tie-breaking RBI single in the 12th inning after Houston's Colby Rasmus hit a tying two-run homer off closer Craig Kimbrel in the ninth, and the Boston Red Sox beat the Astros 7-5 on Sunday night.

Bradley singled with the bases loaded off Ken Giles (0-2). It was the first run the Red Sox had scored since Bradley belted the second of back-to-back RBI doubles with Ryan Hanigan in the third. Hanigan preceded Bradley's 12th-inning hit with a 13-pitch walk.

Mookie Betts grounded into a force at home, and then Giles uncorked a wild pitch that allowed Hanigan to score.

Heath Hembree (1-0) pitched three scoreless innings and struck out Evan Gattis and Marwin Gonzalez with two on to end it.

Rasmus hit a 98 mph 0-1 fastball from Kimbrel out to right-center field to tie it 5-5. Rasmus had a tie-breaking grand slam in Houston's 8-3 win over Boston on Saturday.
