The touted rookie came through with an infield hit toward third after beginning the night 0 for 5 with four strikeouts in a game started by Seattle ace Felix Hernandez. Jose Altuve singled off Charlie Furbush (0-3) to open the 11th and Dexter Fowler reached on a bunt single. A sacrifice bunt by Carlos Corporan came next, and Altuve beat the throw to third to load bases for Springer. Anthony Bass (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings for the win. Marc Krauss had two hits and drove in two runs for Houston. Mike Zunino hit a two-run homer and Kyle Seager added a pair of RBIs for Seattle, which had a three-game winning streak snapped. Houston had trouble taking advantage of chances throughout the game and was 3 for 17 with runners in scoring position. Robinson Cano was initially ruled safe on a grounder with two outs in the 10th inning. But the play was challenged and overturned on replay to end the inning. The Astros tied it at 4 in the eighth when Alex Presley scored on a groundout by Jonathan Villar. Hernandez allowed five hits and three runs -- two earned -- with six strikeouts in five innings. Houston starter Brad Peacock gave up six hits and four runs while also striking out six in six innings. Michael Saunders started the sixth with a bunt single and Cano drew a one-out walk before Cory Hart singled to load the bases. Seagers two-run double came next to give Seattle a 4-3 lead. Springer had a chance to catch the ball in right field, but it bounced off his glove as he crashed into the fence near the bullpen. Springer was down on the ground as Fowler came over to retrieve the ball. Seager singled with no outs in the fifth before Zunino connected on his homer to the Crawford Boxes in left field to tie it at 2 with two outs. Hernandez plunked Jason Castro in the fifth before Krauss RBI single, on a ball that bounced right in front of the wall in right field, put Houston back on top 3-2. Krauss was out at second trying to stretch the hit into a double. Altuve had a bunt single to start Houstons third before a single by Fowler. The Astros went up 1-0 when Castro reached and Altuve scored on an error by centre fielder Abraham Almonte, who was sprinting toward the wall when the ball just eluded his glove. Krauss RBI single sent Fowler home to push the lead to 2-0.

"I was happy being here," the 42-year-old Jagr said Thursday in a conference call from Belarus, where he is playing for the Czech Republic in the world championships. "There was no reason to change. There was no reason to test free agency. What would happen? Someone might give me more money, but nobody can guarantee me that Id be happy someplace else. If Im happy, then theres no reason to go anywhere else. I play my best hockey when Im happy." The Devils did not release terms of the contract. Jagr said it was a one-year deal. The contract is believed to be worth $6 million with incentives. "I like having one-year deals," Jagr said. "If something goes wrong, you never know if you have a long contract and say have three years left. One year is good for everybody. I think both sides wanted to get this done quickly. Lou (Lamoriello, the teams president and general manager) wanted to do it, because he wanted to see the direction where hes going with the team." Jagr was the Devils leading scorer this, finishing with 24 goals and 43 assists for 67 points. "Id truly like to score more goals," Jagr said. "I feel like I can play with the guys we have. We have a better chance to play better. We have a good group of guys and thats very important. I like to play a lot, because I dont get tired." Jagr will turn 43 in February of next season, his 21st year in the NHL. A two-time winner of the Stanley Cup when he played for the Pittsburgh Peenguins, Jagr has 705 goals and 1,050 assists.

"We made a lot of mistakes early," Jagr said. "But we were able to play good against the good teams. We lost a lot of points to teams that didnt make the playoffs. It put us in a position where we had to win almost every game and that was too much pressure. We didnt have any great superstars, but we had good goal scorers that give us a chance to compete against anybody and beat anybody. Its just my feeling, but we didnt have to be great to win games, if we work hard." Jagr said that he liked the camaraderie in the Devils locker room. "We have a lot of fun," Jagr said. "We have a loose atmosphere. Theres not a bad guy in the room. Maybe we need a bad one to get in the playoffs." Jagr was named Thursday as one of the three finalists for the Bill Masterton Award, given to the player "who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey," along with Manny Malholtra of the Carolina Hurricanes and Dominic Moore of the New York Rangers. "It means a lot that the hockey writers picked me," Jagr said. "Hockey writers can be very picky, so for them to pick me means a lot. I just love the sport and follow the laws of the sport." Jagr said he plans to keep playing after next season. "Theres no reason to stop," Jagr said. "I want to play for as long as I can. As long as I work hard, I am going to continue to play." ' ' '
