HOUSTON (AP) Matt Dominguez hit a tying homer and Jose Altuve's fourth hit drove in the go-ahead run as the Houston Astros rallied in the eighth inning to beat the Texas Rangers 3-2 on Sunday.

Dominguez connected off reliever Neal Cotts (2-8) with one out in the eighth to make it 2-all.

One out, one pitching change and three batters later, Altuve singled home Jake Marisnick.

Altuve also doubled twice in matching his career high for hits. Dominguez had an RBI single earlier in the game.

The Astros won a series for the first time since Aug. 19-21 at Yankee Stadium.

Jose Veras (3-1) got the win and Chad Qualls posted his 16th save.
