DETROIT – Jose Iglesias drove in the game-ending run on an infield single with two outs in the ninth inning to give the Detroit Tigers a 3-2 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night.
With the Astros up 2-1, Houston closer Will Harris (1-2) retired the first two batters in the ninth but then walked Justin Upton. Tyler Collins singled and James McCann drove him in with another single.
Iglesias then hit a grounder between first and second base. First baseman Jason Castro ranged to his right to field it, but Iglesias beat Harris to the bag while Collins scored.
Detroit led 1-0 going into the ninth, but Houston rallied to take the lead in the top of the inning.
Justin Verlander (11-6) threw a complete game and allowed two runs on five hits. He struck out 11.
