Offensively, Michael Brantley and Aledmys Diaz were both 2-4. Jake Marisnick went 3-3 with an RBI and Altuve had two RBI to go with his two homeruns.
The Astros improve to 8-5 on the season and will travel to Seattle to take on the Mariners beginning Friday night. Wade Miley will take the mound to open the series.
