Former Hog Dallas Keuchel goes 8 innings for 8th win of 2014

Posted:

HOUSTON (AP) - Chris Carter homered twice, Dallas Keuchel pitched eight strong innings and the Houston Astros beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-1 on Wednesday night.
    
Keuchel (8-3) won for the sixth time in seven starts. He allowed four hits and a run, striking out five and lowering his ERA to 2.38.
    
Carter's first solo home run made it 3-1 in the fourth inning, and he added an opposite-field shot in the seventh. It was the fifth career multihomer game for Carter and second this year.
    
Carter has struggled this season and is batting just .199, but his power is undeniable and he's tied for the team lead with 12 homers.
    
Brandon McCarthy (1-9) allowed eight hits and four runs in six-plus innings to remain winless since May 3.
    
Aaron Hill homered in the fourth for Arizona's only extra-base hit.
