HOUSTON (AP) - Dallas Keuchel pitched eight scoreless innings, Colby Rasmus provided the offense with an RBI single and the Houston Astros snapped a three-game skid with a 1-0 win over the Detroit Tigers on Friday night.

Luke Gregerson pitched a perfect ninth to complete the shutout and earn his third save.

Keuchel (2-1), who was last year's American League Cy Young winner, has won a franchise-record 17 straight regular season games at home. He hasn't lost in Houston since Aug. 10, 2014.

On Friday he allowed five hits and struck out four with one walk for his second win this season.

Mike Pelfrey (0-2) allowed five hits, one run and tied a career-high with six walks in six innings for his second straight loss to start the season.
