Hank Conger's homer in 14th sends Astros past Rangers 6-4

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Hank Conger hit a two-run homer in the 14th inning following George Springer's game-saving catch in the 10th, and the Houston Astros beat the Texas Rangers 6-4 Sunday.

Conger homered after Evan Gattis reached base for the first time this season - on a walk in his 21st at-bat of the year.

Robbie Grossman ran for Gattis, but it didn't matter when Conger pulled a pitch from Jason Verrett (0-1) into the second row of seats in right field.

Will Harris (1-0) retired six straight batters. He struck out the side in the 12th, his 19th consecutive scoreless outing dating to August.

Samuel Deduno loaded the bases with two outs in the bottom of the 14th but got his first big league when Rougned Odor lined out to right field.
