Keuchel throws 2 shutout innings in debut, Astros top Braves

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - AL Cy Young Award winner Dallas Keuchel pitched two shutout innings in his spring debut Wednesday and the Houston Astros went on to beat the Atlanta Braves 9-5.

Keuchel faced eight batters, giving up a walk to Freddie Freeman and a double to Adonis Garcia before striking out Kelly Johnson to end the first inning.

Jason Castro hit his first spring home run for the Astros off Julio Teheran, who was also making his first start. Marwin Gonzalez hit his second homer of the spring for Houston.

Jose Altuve's two-run double highlighted a five-run fifth off Braves reliever Chris Volstad.

Teheran gave up three hits and two earned runs in three innings, walking one and striking out one.

Freeman hit his second home run for Atlanta and Nate Freiman hit his first.
