Berkman's double lifts Astros over Red Sox

Jun 29, 2008 - 2:36 AM HOUSTON (Ticker) -- Lance Berkman's RBI double in the eighth inning brought in the go-ahead run as the Houston Astros came from behind to top the Boston Red Sox, 11-10, on Saturday.

Berkman, who struck out in his first three at-bats Saturday, singled in a run in the seventh off Craig Hansen before getting to Manny Delcarmen (0-2) in the eighth. After Ty Wigginton led off the frame with a solo homer to tie the game at 9-9, Berkman came up with two outs and two on and rapped a double into the left field corner to put the Astros on top, 11-9.

Carlos Lee and Mark Loretta each homered for Houston, which overcame deficits of 4-0 and 9-6.

Mike Lowell and Dustin Pedroia each had four hits for the Red Sox.
