Royals slip past Astros 7-5

Houston Astros Josh Reddick beats the tag by Kansas City Royals second baseman Whit Merrifield to steal second during the eighth inning of a baseball game Tuesday

It also makes it well for Keuchel that he is playing on a Houston Astros team that has the best record in baseball and you can attest a lot of that towards him.

The Astros had their 11-game win streak put to an end on Tuesday in a 9-7 loss to the Royals.

The bottom of the Royals order was especially productive, including second baseman Ramon Torres, called up earlier in the day and making his major league debut.

Up 7-3 in the eighth inning and on the brink of winning their 12th straight game, the Astros were the victims of a ferocious Royals comeback. Jake Marisnick drove in the other two runs with a single. The Kansas City Royals have won seven of their last nine games when scoring more than three runs.

Orioles 6, Pirates 5, 10 inn.: Jonathan Schoop tied it in the ninth inning with his second home run of the game, and Mark Trumbo singled home a run in the 10th to rally Baltimore past Pittsburgh. McCullers struck out eight.

Mike Minor (3-1) pitched a scoreless inning for the Royals.

Astros: RHP Joe Musgrove (shoulder discomfort) will throw a bullpen Thursday to see if he will be available Sunday to start against the Angels.

Though Fakhar had illuminated The Oval, there was a suspicion that Pakistan's total was within reach of India's stellar batting. India still had three wickets in hand but the deafening cheers from the Pakistan fans made clear that the end was nigh.

"They won nearly every critical moment", Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. Moustakas had four hits and three RBI. Hammel is 2-2 with a 3.09 ERA in eight career appearances (seven starts) against the Astros and has enjoyed success against Jose Altuve (2-for-11) and McCann (4-for-18).

With two outs and Salvador Perez on first base, Diaz threw Cheslor Cuthbert a changeup.

The Arizona Diamondbacks eased past the San Diego Padres 10-2, the Oakland Athletics beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-1, the Washington Nationals edged the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1 and the Seattle Mariners crushed the Minnesota Twins 12-3.

Herrera retired only one of the five batters he faced and was charged with four runs, three hits and a walk.
