Castro, Springer power Houston past Minnesota, 6-4

HOUSTON (AP) Jason Castro and George Springer hit homers and the Houston Astros held on for a 6-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night.

Castro hit his first homer of the year to lead off the three-run third inning, and Springer hit a shot that bounced off the railroad tracks in left field and out of the stadium to cap the three-run fourth.

Castro's home run was knocked down by a fan and never made it over the wall into the Crawford Boxes, but it was called a homer, and after a lengthy review, it was confirmed.
