HOUSTON — Victor Caratini hit an RBI single in the 10th inning to lift Houston to a 2-1 win over the Oakland Athletics after the Astros lost their starting pitcher when Ronel Blanco was ejected following a foreign substance check. The game was tied at 1 when pinch-runner Trey Cabbage replaced Jon Singleton as the automatic runner on second in the bottom of the 10th. Cabbage moved to third on a flyball by Jake Meyers before Caratini hit a grounder to center off Michael Kelly to give the Astros their fifth win in six games. Josh Hader got the win by escaping a jam in the top of the 10th.
