The Astros fell 6-3 to the Mariners in 11 innings in Houston. Yordan Alvarez put Houston ahead early with his solo bomb in the second, launching his 25th homer of the year. Framber Valdez allowed only three hits and no runs in seven frames, but took the no-decision. Ryne Stanek was charged his third loss in relief as the Astros lost their fifth in their last eight. They host the Royals for a series starting tonight.
