Dallas Keuchel shines in 4–2 win over Royals, Astros take 2–1 ALDS lead
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.
