Caleb Joseph and Steve Pearce hit two-run homers off Dallas Keuchel as the
Baltimore Orioles dealt the left-hander his first loss in a 4-3 victory over the Houston Astros on Monday.
Keuchel (6-1) came in with a 1.67 ERA and had won three straight starts. He allowed just one home run in nine appearances this season before Joseph connected in the second inning and Pearce went deep in the seventh.
Keuchel gave up six hits, struck out three and walked one over eight innings in his first complete game of the year and seventh of his career.
George Springer had a season-high three hits and a homer for the Astros, who stranded seven and went one for 11 with runners in scoring position.
By contrast, Baltimore left no one on base and did not bat once with a runner in scoring position. [FULL STORY]
