HOUSTON (AP) - Jon Singleton wound up with an inside-the-park home run after a call was reversed on video replay, Chris Carter and Jason Castro also homered, and the Houston Astros beat the Toronto Blue Jays 8-2 on Saturday night.
Brett Oberholtzer pitched seven strong innings and Jose Altuve scored the go-ahead run on back-to-back throwing errors by Toronto.
Singleton drove in L.J. Hoes in the eighth before getting called out on the tag at home plate. The Astros appealed the call and had it reversed upon review.
Oberholtzer (4-7) gave up two runs on six hits while striking out five and walking one to win his second consecutive start.
R.A. Dickey (9-11) was tagged for five runs on nine hits over seven-plus innings. He struck out three. It was Dickey's first loss since July 18 after winning his previous two starts.
