Twins End Keuchel’s 17-Game Home Win Streak, Beat Astros 6-2
HOUSTON (AP) — Brian Dozier broke out of a slump with three hits and the Minnesota Twins snapped Dallas Keuchel's 17-game home winning streak with a 6-2 victory over the Houston Astros on Monday night.
Keuchel (2-4) allowed five runs on five hits with three strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings and struggled with his command for the third time this season, walking five. The Cy Young winner hadn't lost at home since Aug. 10, 2014, against Texas.

Jose Berrios (1-1) earned his first career win, giving up two runs on three hits with eight strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings in his second major league start. Berrios was tagged for five runs in four innings in his first start.
