Astros place Dallas Keuchel back on 10-day disabled list

Astros place Dallas Keuchel back on 10-day disabled list

Altuve hit a two-run homer as the Houston Astros sent 10 men to the plate in a five-run ninth inning to beat the Kansas City Royals 6-1 on Thursday night.

Jose Altuve hit a go-ahead two-run homer off Kelvin Herrera (1-2) to ignite a five-run rally in the ninth at Kauffman Stadium.

Carlos Beltran hit his 429th career home run in the Astros' four-run fourth, giving them the six-run advantage.

Hammel's final line: 7.0 innings, four hits, four strikeouts, and the one run. Moments later, after two more walks, first baseman Yuli Gurriel dumped a two-run single into center field with two outs.

Lorenzo Cain's triple ended McCuller's no-hit bid. He enters Wednesday's start against the Royals with a sterling 9-0 record and has a chance to make it 10-0 if he continues to pitch as well as he has been this season. He is the first player in Reds history, and just the 17th Major League Baseball player all time, to hit four home runs in a single game.

The Astros tacked on four more runs in the fourth. When you look at some of the other pitchers like Clayton Kershaw, Chris Sale, Stephen Strasburg and others who are having good seasons so far.

Royals starter Jason Hammel allowed one run and four hits over seven innings. Will Harris took care of the Royals in the home half of the eighth. The 23-year-old right-hander will carry a strong 2.58 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 89/23 K/BB ratio (76 2/3 innings) into a home start against the Rangers next time out.

The Royals' only early baserunner was rookie Jorge Bonifacio, who walked with one out in the first. The Cardinals pitcher gave up nine earned runs over 3.2 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.

Angels 11, Tigers 4: Albert Pujols hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly to cap a four-run fifth inning and Los Angeles added six runs in the seventh to rout host Detroit. With such a sizable lead in the division, the Astros will probably be all right without Keuchel for a week-plus.

A number of things could have caused Keuchel to have this discomfort in his neck, but this is not the first time he's experienced it. Vargas' ERA inched up from 2.08 to 2.18 in the win, the Royals' second straight over the Astros.

The only run off Hammel came on a balk in the sixth inning.
