ASTROS 4, TWINS 1
Alex Bregman homered for the third straight game and Yuli Gurriel also went deep to help Houston win its third straight.
Dallas Keuchel (11-10) scattered five hits over six innings and allowed an unearned run for his second straight win. Brad Peacock allowed a single with two outs in the ninth to load the bases but struck out Jorge Polanco to escape the jam and get his third save.
Minnesota’s Kyle Gibson (7-12) yielded four hits and four runs – two earned – with five strikeouts in seven innings for his third straight loss.
There were two outs in the first inning when Bregman knocked his 28th home into the seats in left field to give Houston a 1-0 lead. Bregman has reached base safely in 31 straight games, which is the longest active streak in the majors.
