MLB Upates: Houston Astros wins Over Boston Red Sox; 6th Straight Win Baseball

Boston Red Sox got defeated in a matchup of the AL division leaders against Houston Astros on Friday night, leading 6th straight wins for Astros.  Astros manager AJ Hinch says his team is at its best when his players are putting together good at-bats one after another which proved to be true on September 7, 2018, at Fenway Park.

Carlos Correa's lofted a tiebreaking fly at the 8th innings working as the key to Astros' victory. Even though Boston's starter David allowed just one hit and retired 14 in a row till the 7th innings, Boston Red Sox couldn't take the advantage leaving them their best record of 3 in a row.

Correa hit a  tiebreaking fly leading the Astros ahead and took the advantage of a wild pitch by Joe Kelly (4-2) and scored a run, secured by Tyler White's RBI single.
