BOSTON (AP) — Hanley Ramirez's one-handed, two-run homer put an end to a rough two-day stretch for the Houston Astros.
Ramirez hooked a low pitch from Tony Sipp into the first row of the Green Monster seats to drive in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox.
"We didn't finish plays or at-bats really like we normally do," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. "We had a lot of walks. We gave them a couple extra opportunities, and they took full advantage, and get beat on a front-foot, one-handed home run or a one-arm home run, so it's a tough day."
