Eduardo Rodriguez held the Astros to just one run on four hits over six innings - maybe his best outing of the year - as the Red Sox beat Houston 4-1 at Minute Maid Park in the Sunday finale of the weekend series.

Carlos Correa singled home a run in the bottom of the first inning to give Justin Verlander a 1-0 lead, the only Astro run of the afternoon.

Andrew Benintendi tied the game with a sacrifice fly in the third inning, Rafael Devers hit a solo home run in the fourth, and another run scored on an error in the fifth.

Eduardo Nunez closed out the scoring with an RBI ground out in the ninth.

Rodriguez (pictured) and a trio of relievers - Brandon Workman, Matt Barnes, Marcus Walden - held Houston hitless after the third inning.

Devers and Nunez each had two hits for the Red Sox who end the road trip with a 4-3 record and have won 17 of their last 25 games.
