Astros break through for 4 in 11th, slow O’s playoff push

Astros over Orioles 2-1


BALTIMORE (AP) — Christian Vazquez hit a bases-loaded single to cap a four-run 11th inning for Houston, and the Astros went on to a 6-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. The Orioles’ postseason hopes took another blow, missing a chance to move up in the AL wild-card standings.

They remained four games behind Seattle for the third and final spot.

Houston ended the regular season 51-30 on the road. Only the Los Angeles Dodgers, at 52-26, will finish with a better mark. The Astros salvaged the last two games of this series after Baltimore shut them down in the first two.
