    Chicago White Sox's Josh Phegley watches his RBI single off Houston Astros relief pitcher David Martinez, according Jeff Keppinger, during the sixth inning.

    Matt Dominguez hit a tiebreaking solo homer with two outs in the ninth inning and Chris Carter followed with his second home run of the game to lift the Houston Astros to a 10-8 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Monday night.

    The Astros squandered a five-run lead and trailed 8-7 before tying the score on Carter's RBI single in the seventh inning. White Sox reliever Addison Reed (5-2) struck out Jose Altuve and Jason Castro to open the ninth before Dominguez put Houston back ahead with his 19th homer, a shot to left field on a 1-0 pitch. Carter then added his 25th of the season.

    David Martinez (1-0) pitched 2 2-3 innings to get his first major league win, and Jordan Lyles — Houston's third pitcher of the ninth inning — got the last out for his first save in his first chance this season.
