Recap: Texas vs. Houston

San Antonio, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - George Springer's run-scoring single in the top of the ninth proved to be the difference, as the Houston Astros held on for a 6-5 win over the Texas Rangers on Friday in spring training action from the Alamodome.

Springer scored Alex Presley with a single in the ninth to make it 6-3 Houston, but Michael Choice followed Chris Snyder's leadoff single in the home half with a blast to right-center, bringing Texas within 6-5.

However, Jason Stoffel bounced back to retire the next three hitters in order, as Houston escaped with the victory.

Chris Carter clubbed a three-run homer during a four-run first frame for the Astros, who saw starter Jerome Williams allow one run on three hits over three innings.

Adrian Beltre and Kevin Kouzmanoff each finished 2-for-2 with a solo homer in the setback. Texas starter Matt Harrison surrendered four runs on five hits and two walks over three frames.

If contradiction was an Olympic sport, Chip Kelly would certainly be medal-worthy judging by his performance at the NFL's owners meeting but the Eagles coach might have to settle for silver because Daniel Snyder's critics will take the gold every time.

There isn't much after that. The Miami Marlins are loaded up for a playoff push -- likely through a wild card spot -- and the New York Mets are up-and- coming but still raw. The Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies, former powerhouses of the division, are going through rebuilds and won't contend anytime soon.
