Rays snap Astros' 12-game win streak (1:15)

Rays rally late, stop Astros' winning streak at 12

C.J. Cron homered early and Wilson Ramos hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the eighth inning to lift the Tampa Bay Rays to a 2-1 win on Tuesday night to snap a 12-game winning streak by the Houston Astros.

The Astros' 12-game winning streak is over. They got two runners on in the bottom of the ninth with two outs, but A.J. Hinch elected not to pinch-hit for light-hitting Jake Marisnick with Brian McCann available on the bench, and Sergio Romo induced the game-ending pop-up. The Rays had a lefty warming up, but I'd take McCann versus Jonny Venters over Marisnick versus Romo.

Ramos' chopper scores go-ahead run (0:23)

Justin Verlander did come out for the seventh, but couldn't finish it as Adeiny Hechavarria had a terrific 10-pitch at-bat with two outs and finally doubled over the glove of Alex Bregman. Verlander leaves after throwing a season-high 122 pitches and you know he's not happy about leaving with his baserunner out there on second base.
