Gattis, Correa power Astros over Angels 6-3

HOUSTON (AP) - Evan Gattis and Carlos Correa hit two-run homers, and the Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Angels 6-3 on Monday night in a matchup of American League wild-card contenders.

Dallas Keuchel (18-8) pitched 7 2-3 solid innings to remain undefeated at home this season. More importantly, the All-Star left-hander helped Houston keep momentum by winning its third straight.

The Astros (80-71) lead the Minnesota Twins by three games and the Angels by 3 1-2 for the AL's second wild-card spot. The victory put the Astros within a game of first-place Texas in the AL West. Both the Twins and Rangers were off Monday.

The Astros are trying to make the playoffs for the first time in 10 years. Their last two playoff runs, including the 2005 World Series, came via wild card.

The loss was the second straight for the Angels (76-74), who dropped to 11-8 in September.
