Brad Peacock struck out a career-high 11 batters, but he gave up four runs in six innings which was more than enough for the Texas Rangers who beat the Astros 4-0 on Monday night at Minute Maid Park.

Peacock was tagged was with his fourth loss of the season, while Colby Lewis earned his third win. He kept Houston off the board for 5.2 innings, striking out eight. The Rangers bullpen trio of Nick Martinez, Neal Cotts, and Joakim Soria combined for 3.1 innings of scoreless ball to preserve the shutout.

Adrian Beltre broke a 0-0 tie when he hit a two-out, two-run homer with two out off Brad Peacock. After the Astros stranded a runner in the bottom of the inning, Texas struck again when Rougned Odor singled in a run with two-out to make it a three-run game.

Odor gave the Rangers a 4-0 lead when he hit his first career home run in the sixth inning. He along with Beltre and Prince Fielder had two hits for Texas.

Houston had 10 hits and worked three walks, but were just 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position, leaving 11 men on base. Jose Altuve had three hits, while Matt Dominguez and George Springer had two hits for the Astros.

Both teams struck out 14 times.
