Houston Astros defeat Texas Rangers 7-1: The Astros defeated the Rangers in game one of this three-game set. Dallas Keuchel got the win, improving his record to 9-0 on the season. He’s been the best pitcher in baseball on the best team in baseball all season long. Carlos Correa started the scoring with a three-run home run in the fifth inning off of Rangers starter Yu Darvish. These would be the only three runs that Darvish would allow all game. The Astros would tack on four more runs in the eighth inning off of Rangers reliever Dillon Gee. Keuchel didn’t allow a run in his six innings pitched. He lowered his ERA to an astounding 1.67 for the season. Adrian Beltre would hit a solo home run for the Rangers in the ninth inning, but it was too little, too late. These two teams will play game two of the series tomorrow in Arlington, Texas.
