Altuve hits grand slam, Astros gain series split in Boston

Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - The first career grand slam for Jose Altuve was one of three homers crushed by the Houston Astros as they beat the Boston Red Sox, 8-1, to earn a split of a four-game set at Fenway Park.

The blast by Altuve punctuated a six-run second and came after an inning- ending double play was overturned by replay.

Altuve finished with four hits, while Collin McHugh (6-9) earned the win after allowing a run on seven hits and four walks in six innings.
