Springer was really 'in the zone'. He banged out a single in the 1st inning, lined a one-base hit in the 3rd inning, tripled knocking in a run in the 5th inning, clubbed a two-run home run in the 6th inning and slapped a base-hit plating a run in the 7th inning. Houston bats were very productive in the 4th inning when they had 4 runs on 5 hits and the 7th inning which saw them score 6 runs on 6 hits. The Houston offense smacked the Minnesota pitching staff around, scoring in 7 of the 9 innings. Verlander(7-0) got the win allowing 1 run in 7 innings. Jose Berrios(5-7) was the losing pitcher. His ERA ballooned from 4.09 to 4.68 as he allowed 9 runs in 3 and 1/3 innings. 'They made a couple of mistakes and I took full advantage,' Springer said 'next time I'm sure they'll pitch me tougher.'
