HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610) - Astros rookie Luis Garcia pitched 5 2/3 innings of one-hit ball against the Boston Red Sox with his team holding a 1-0 lead in the sixth at the time of his exit.

Houston extended its lead over Boston 2-0 in the bottom half of the si

This outing was much different than Garcia's last one, when he was charged with five earned runs in just one inning, including a grand slam. Garcia commanded his pitches early against the Red Sox, and his velocity was higher than it's ever been .

Garcia also made Boston hitters whiff on his cutter on 12 out of their 13 swings. He dominated this lineup, reminiscent of Framber Valdez the game before at Fenway .

The Astros scored their runs on a Yordan Alvarez RBI-double in the first inning, then Kyle Tucker's grounder in the sixth.
