Former Hog Keuchel helps Astros top Sox

Posted:

 

HOUSTON (AP) - Jason Castro homered for the second straight game and Matt Dominguez hit a three-run double to help the Houston Astros to their fourth straight win, 5-4, over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday.

Dominguez put Houston on top 3-0 with a double in the second inning, and Castro hit a two-run shot to make it 5-2 in the seventh.

The left-handed Castro hit his first career home run off a left-hander on Saturday night when he connected off John Danks, and made it two when he hit a slider from Matt Thornton on Sunday.

Alejandro De Aza tripled and scored in the sixth and Dayan Viciedo tripled and scored in the seventh to cut the lead to 3-2. De Aza added a two-out, two-run homer off Jose Veras to make it 5-4 in the ninth before Alexei Ramirez grounded out to give Veras his 14th save.
