HOUSTON (AP) — Adrian Gonzalez hit a go-ahead two-run double after Dustin Pedroia drove in a pair of runs during Boston’s six-run seventh inning, helping the Red Sox rally for a 7-5 win over the Houston Astros on Friday night.

Marco Scutaro started the game with his third homer of the season, but Boston didn’t get another hit until J.D. Drew began the seventh inning with a single.

Josh Reddick and Drew Sutton each drove in a run before Pedroia’s bases-loaded single with one out tied it at 5 and set up Gonzalez’s clutch swing.

Houston starter Bud Norris struck out 10 in six-plus innings, but was charged with four runs and four hits in the opener of the third-ever series between these teams and the first since 2008.
