Diaz hits slam, Astros tag Pérez, rally past Rangers 7-5

HOUSTON (AP) Aledmys Diaz hit a grand slam as the Houston Astros roughed up Martin Perez and rallied past the Texas Rangers 7-5 Tuesday night.

Perez (9-3) tied a season high by allowing seven runs in five-plus innings to snap a nine-game winning streak, the longest active string in the majors and the best of his career. He had gone 19 straight starts without a loss, with his last one coming on April 17.

The Astros snapped a two-game skid playing without manager Dusty Baker who remained out after testing positive for COVID-19 Thursday. Baker isolated in a Cleveland hotel room all weekend before taking a private jet back to Houston on Monday.
