Astros top Royals, push winning streak to 10
The Houston Astros have won 10 games in a row, tallying 10 hits as they cruised to a 10-2 victory over Kansas City Royals.
The Astros took an early lead on a two-RBI double by Jose Altuve in the first inning and plated two runs in the fifth to double their lead to 4-0.
Kansas City scored twice in the bottom of that frame. But catcher Max Stassi blasted a three-run homer in the next inning to help the Astros pull away.
Dallas Keuchel picked up the win for the Astros after he allowed two runs, none earned, in six innings on the mound. Royals starter Danny Duffy pitched six innings and surrendered seven runs, six earned.
The win moved Houston to 47-25 this year while the Royals fell to 22-48.
ROSARIO STRIKES HARD
Twins left fielder Eddie Rosario went four for four, scored four runs and drove in two more in a 9-3 win against the Indians.
Sean Newcomb pitched six shut-out innings and struck out seven in the Braves' 1-0 win over the Padres.
RONDON AND RAMIREZ BELOW PAR
Bruce Rondon allowed two hits and one run while recording just a single out in the White Sox's 7-5 loss to the Tigers. He also walked two batters.
Angels reliever Noe Ramirez surrendered three runs in his one inning on the mound against the Athletics. He picked up his third loss of the season in a 6-4 defeat.
