Astros miss out on insurance run after losing challenge

PHOENIX -- Bo Porter lost a challenge in the eighth inning of the Astros' 4-3 win against the D-backs on Monday night at Chase Field.

Second baseman Jose Altuve tried to score from second on a single by Jon Singleton to right field. D-backs right fielder Gerardo Parra threw home, and Altuve adjusted his path to avoid being hit by the ball.
