CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A strange double play helped the Cleveland Indians to a 2-1 win over the Astros in Houston Thursday night.

With 2 men on in the 6th, Houston’s Carlos Correa appeared to hit a ball off his foot. Correa thought it was foul and didn’t run to first. Jose Ramirez fielded the ball, stepped on 3rd and threw to first for the inning-ending double play. Umpires reviewed the call and let it stand, getting Trevor Bauer out of the jam.

Bauer went 8 innings for the win, improving to 3-1. He struck out 3 and worked around 6 walks.

Leonys Martin and Jake Bauers hit solo homers for the Tribe.

Houston’s Michael Brantley went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in his first game against his former club.
