Box Score: Astros 7, Indians 1

The Indians dropped their second straight to the Astros to lose their interleague series in Houston. As was the case on Saturday, the Tribe got on the board first with a run in the second. But it would be all Houston from there on, as they poured in on in the late innings to cruise to another easy win. Derek Lowe kept it close, giving up three runs but both Nick Hagadone and Esmil Rogers gave up two-run homers in the eighth that blew it open to 7-1.
