Oberholtzer (2-0) struck out two while walking two and scattering four hits in his second career start. The left-hander has not allowed a run over 14 innings for the Astros, who snapped a four-game slide.
Notes: The Red Sox recalled RHP Brandon Workman from Triple-A Pawtucket and placed OF Daniel Nava on paternity leave. ... Boston RHP Clay Buchholz (shoulder) is expected to throw off a mound today for the first time since before the All-Star break.
