A night after striking out 14 times in a shutout loss, the Astros’ bats woke up Tuesday night and hung eight runs on the Texas Rangers in their own 8-0 shutout win.  The eight runs were more than enough for Dallas Keuchel who tossed a complete game shutout while striking out seven.

The win just the third for the Astros over Texas over the last 23 meetings and improves their record to 13-27. With the win, Keuchel improved his record to 4-2.

Following Chris Carter’s leadoff single in the bottom of the second, L.J. Hoes gave the Astros the lead when he knocked his second home run of the season into the Crawford Boxes. With 2-out in the inning, George Springer walked after a Jose Altuve double, then Dexter Fowler singled to make it a 3-0 game.

Springer gave Houston a 4-0 lead when he singled after an Altuve triple in the fourth inning, but the Astros blew the game open in the fifth with a 4-run frame, capped off by Carlos Corporan’s 3-run homer.

Houston’s offense was paced by Chris Carter’s three hits. Corporan and Hoes knocked in three.

Matt Harrison took the loss for the Rangers. He left the game with two out in the second with back stiffness. Justin Germano gave up the Astros’ other five runs.
