Keuchel, Springer lead Astros over Twins 5-4

June 7, 2014
Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Dallas Keuchel shut out Minnesota for six innings, George Springer hit his 11th home run and the Houston Astros held on to beat the Twins 5-4 Friday night.

Marwin Gonzalez and Matt Dominguez also homered off Phil Hughes (6-2), who lost for the first time in nine starts.

Danny Santana hit his first career home run, a two-run shot in the seventh inning off reliever Tony Sipp as the Twins tried to rally late.

After the first pitch was delayed 1 hour, 21 minutes, by a storm that never arrived, Keuchel (7-3) struck out six and won for the fifth time in his last six starts.

Springer drove a pitch from Hughes that was down and away off the plate an estimated 402 feet to the opposite field in the sixth to give Houston a 5-0 lead.
