News
Astros second baseman Jose Altuve capitalized Sunday on a defensive mistake by Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts, which led to his first career grand slam in an 8-1 win at Boston.

The Astros got a break when manager Bo Porter won a challenge after Bogaerts picked up Marwin Gonzalez's grounder, ran to second for what looked like a force and fired to first. The problem was he threw the ball about a step before he tagged the bag. 

The inning continued after the challenge. Joe Kelly then walked Robbie Grossman before Altuve parked a grand slam to put Boston up 6-0 in the second inning.

''That there's a big play,'' said Porter, who said he was first told by the umpires that the play wasn't reviewable. ''You look at that stage of the game and what proceeded to happen after that, Altuve with the big grand slam, one could say that was the biggest play of the game.''

Altuve finished Sunday's game with four hits. He is batting .338 with two home runs, three doubles, eight RBI and 11 runs in 15 August games.

News
Astros reliever Jesse Crain has been able to throw off a mound, according to MLB.com.

Crain is recovering after biceps surgery he had last October. He's had a number of setbacks, which have sidelined him until now. He's been able to throw fastballs and changeups off a mound thus far, and is hoping to do more soon. "I'll keep on grinding away and see what happens," Crain said. "For the last two weeks, I've been feeling pretty good." 

Crain is hoping to start throwing breaking balls soon. Once he's able to do that, he would progress to facing live hitters. He's hoping to progress over the next couple of weeks so that he can pitch for the club this season. "There's going to be a bunch of reasons for me to get out there," Crain said. "Hopefully, time doesn't run out."

News
Astros catcher Carlos Corporan has been limited a bruised right thumb over the last two months, MLB.com reports Thursday.

"It's been hurting," he said before Thursday's game. "Just the fact I don't play every day, it's something you have to keep treating and then take care of. I'm just trying to forget about it and perform the best I can."  

Coporan injured the thumb in mid-June and has been trying to deal with the injury by adding extra padding while catching. The fact that he does not play everyday has helped him avoid the DL, but this might be an injury he has to deal with for the rest of the season.

"I'm trying to do my best and take some medicine and try to get the best treatment I have for my thumb," he said. "The [training staff] has been doing a pretty good job. They've kept me in the lineup, avoiding the DL."

Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer had a tough outing Tuesday against the Yankees.

Oberholtzer allowed four runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings. He struck out seven and walked one. Oberholtzer turned in three scoreless innings before Brian McCann took him deep for a two-run shot in the third inning. The Astros managed to give Oberholtzer a lead in the sixth, but he couldn’t hold on. Oberholtzer gave up a leadoff single to lead off the bottom of the frame. That base-runner advanced to second on a balk. Oberholtzer then walked Carlos Beltran, and gave up a two-run double against Martin Prado, tying the game at four. He was replaced by Tony Sipp.

Oberholtzer will take on the Indians in his next start.
