HOUSTON (AP) - Dallas Keuchel threw 7 2/3 solid innings, Marwin Gonzalez hit a three-run home run and the Houston Astros beat the Oakland Athletics 7-2 on Sunday.
Keuchel (5-0) struck out nine, while allowing one run on three hits and two walks. The left-hander has thrown at least seven innings in every outing this season. He became the second pitcher in Astros history to get five wins in April, joining Roger Clemens, who went 5-0 in 2004.
After Trevor Plouffe doubled with one out in the first, Keuchel retired 10 straight and 13 of the next 14 batters he faced.
Ken Giles earned his sixth save after getting Yonder Alonso to fly out with the bases loaded.
Jesse Hahn (1-2) gave up four runs on eight hits with six strikeouts in six innings.
Gonzalez hit his home run off the right field foul pole in eighth.
