HOUSTON (AP) — Yordan Alvarez hit an RBI single with one out in the 10th inning to lift the Houston Astros to a 3-2 win over the Seattle Mariners. Mauricio Dubón started the 10th as the automatic runner on second and the Mariners intentionally walked Jose Altuve.

Dubón advanced to third on a sacrifice fly by Yuli Gurriel.

Alvarez then laced a grounder off Brennan Bernardino (0-1), who was making his MLB debut, to left field to send Dubón home and start the celebration. The Mariners were playing without star rookie Julio Rodríguez, who was placed on the injured list with a bruised right wrist Sunday after being hit by a pitch a night earlier.
