The Astros take their 3rd consecutive win in a 6-3 victory over the Tigers.
It started out with a leadoff homer by Victor Reyes to put the Tigers on top 1-0. Then in the home frame of the 1st, Springer went oppo for a leadoff homer, and Altuve followed right after. Back to back homers to the opposite field to start the game for the Astros. Houston extended their lead to 5-1 on a RBI single by Altuve and a 2-run double by Brantley. Both hits were with 2 outs. Giving up 3 runs, Sanchez was taken out through just 2.1 innings. Turns out he is on the 10-day injured list, as well as Carlos Correa. Maldonado hit a solo shot in the fifth to make it 6-3 Astros, and that was it for the scoring for either team. Back at it tonight at 7:10 PM CT for the third game of a four-game set with Verlander pitching against his former team. #AstrosWin - 24 minutes ago
