HOUSTON (AP) - George Springer and Martín Maldonado homered, Alex Bregman hit a go-ahead two-run single in the seventh inning, and the Houston Astros got a needed 4-1 win over the Texas Rangers.

The Astros, who are in second place in the AL West with the top two teams ensured a postseason spot, opened a six-game homestand after dropping 9 of 11 games on their recent road trip.

Their victory was tempered by an injury to shortstop Carlos Correa, who had to be helped off the field after fouling a ball off his left ankle or foot. There was no immediate update on Correa’s condition, but he was in significant pain.
