Unbeaten Keuchel gets HR support, Astros beat Blue Jays

By JORDAN GODWIN

HOUSTON (AP) - Dallas Keuchel remained unbeaten as the Houston Astros backed him with plenty of home run support Friday night in an 8-4 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.

Jose Altuve hit a three-run homer and George Springer and Luis Valbuena also connected as the Astros won their third in a row.

Keuchel (5-0) won his seventh straight decision overall. He gave up four runs and eight hits while striking out five in six innings.

Altuve and Springer homered off R.A. Dickey (1-5) as Houston built a 7-1 lead after four innings. After recently losing six of eight, the Astros have gotten back to the outpouring of offense that put them into the AL West lead.
