Worth noting

• On Saturdays this year, Houston-area Chevy dealers will host free public autograph sessions by current and former Astros players. Times and the players appearing will be announced prior to each autograph session.

• Owner Jim Crane watched the game from Fenway Park for the second day in a row. Crane has a house on nearby Nantucket Island, but he's dropped by several of the Astros' road games this year.
