In the sixth, the Astros broke their scoreless streak with a Jose Altuve double, followed by an oppo taco Yordan Alvarez homer, and the winning run supplied by Carlos Correa with another homer deep to left.

The losing pitcher was Michael Fulmer.

Following McCullers, Ryne Stanek finished the sixth inning and Ryan Pressly got the save with a perfect seventh inning.
