Jose Siri, Chas McCormick hit HRs as Astros sink Diamondbacks

Jose Siri and Chas McCormick clubbed back-to-back home runs in the eighth inning and the Houston Astros rallied to claim the rubber match of their interleague series with the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks 7-6 on Sunday.Siri pulled the Astros even at 6-6 with his two-run shot off Arizona reliever Brandyn Sittinger (0-1), a 423-foot blast to left-center field that scored Carlos Correa. After Siri socked his third home run, McCormick followed with his 13th, driving a 1-0 fastball from Sittinger 417 feet to center field.Pete Solomon (1-0) allowed one run and one hit and three walks with three strikeouts over four innings of relief to earn his first career victory. Astros closer Ryan Pressly notched his 25th save by striking out the side in the ninth while pitching in a third consecutive game.Arizona right-hander Zac Gallen appeared to be in trouble early, allowing a three-run homer to Correa with two outs in the first. Correa spotted Houston the lead with his 24th homer but Gallen settled down until Correa and Kyle Tucker doubled in succession to open the fourth.Tucker cut the deficit to 5-4 with his double and advanced to third with no outs when McCormick reached on an error by Arizona shortstop Josh Rojas. But a baserunning mistake by Tucker led to a double play and Gallen retired Martin Maldonado to end the threat and preserve the lead. He followed by retiring the Astros in order in the fifth and sixth, striking out the side in the latter.
