Houston Astros starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel picked up right where he left off in last Tuesday’s AL wild-card game, helping Houston to a 4–2 win over the Kansas City Royals, and giving the Astros a 2–1 lead in the ALDS.
Keuchel tossed seven innings of one-run ball to earn the victory, allowing just five hits and three walks while striking out seven.
Catcher Jason Castro started the scoring for Houston with a two-run single in the fifth inning to put the Astros ahead 2–1.
The teams will stay in Houston for a potential series-clinching Game 4 on Monday at 1:07 p.m. ET.
