Astros' Keuchel on 10-day disabled list with neck discomfort

Houston Astros Carlos Correa and George Springer celebrate after their baseball game against the Kansas City Royals Monday Astros' Keuchel on 10-day disabled list with neck discomfort

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Astros are favored on the road, as they are getting odds of -170 to win, while the Royals are listed with odds of +155 to prevail. A few minutes before the game was to start, Astros manager A.J. Hinch told Royals manager Ned Yost that Keuchel would not be starting.

The Royals didn't mind at all.

"It starts with the lead-off walk, which probably won't get talked about a ton", Hinch said.

Joakim Soria's eighth inning was picturesque in relief of Hammel-he struck out Alex Bregman, Aoki and Springer, each on 2-2 counts, to put a tie game in the (usually) capable hands of Kelvin Herrera after a two-out single from Drew Butera in the home eighth went for naught.

Two-run homer by Altuve, to the deepest part of the park.

He was activated May 27 and allowed one run and four hits over six innings to win at Texas.

The Astros also weren't done.

But it's different when one steps on the mound in the majors as you're going up against the best and that assertion can be made about the Royals. On Thursday night the Royals get the chance to make it three out of four. He added a second hit, an infield single later in the game.

Astros: RHP Joe Musgrove (shoulder discomfort) will throw a bullpen Thursday to see if he will be available Sunday to start against the Angels. Perez led off the inning with a double and scored on Escobar's two-out single.

The Astros had left fielder Josh Reddick pushed over toward the left-center alley and when Cuthbert put the changeup in play he hit it into the left-field corner.

Escobar followed with a sharp single to right that scored Cuthbert. So if Dallas Keuchel continues to be the utter dominant pitcher that he has been the first half, he could be both be on the verge of winning twenty games and possibly a CY Young award.

The only run off Hammel came on a balk in the sixth inning.

Anyway, Tony Sipp was eventually called up but things got even worse as the Royals took a 5-2 lead after Escobar and Ramon Torres doing their damage as well.

The Royals' only early baserunner was rookie Jorge Bonifacio, who walked with one out in the first.

Yuli Gurriel, who had three hits, contributed a two-run single in the Astros' third, giving him 12 RBIs during a seven-game hitting streak.
