HOUSTON (AP) — Alex Bregman homered for the third straight game and Yuli Gurriel also went deep to help the Houston Astros beat the Minnesota Twins 4-1 for their straight win. Dallas Keuchel scattered five hits over six innings and allowed one run, which was unearned, for his second straight win. Brad Peacock allowed a single with two outs in the ninth to load the bases but he struck out Jorge Polanco to escape the jam and get his third save.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Reds star Joey Votto got a new shirt from a big fan at PNC Park, but Cincinnati wound up with little else, blanked by Trevor Williams and the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-1. In the middle of the fourth inning, Votto walked over to a fan sitting along the first base side who was wearing a T-shirt that read "Votto for President." Votto asked for the shirt, and the man obliged — the suddenly bare-chested fan and Votto exchanged first bumps.
