Astros 4, Mariners 1: Keuchel coasts past Mariners

Otto Greule Jr

Dallas Keuchel retired 21 of 22 final batters he faced today in complete game against Mariners.

Kid Keuchel, King Keuchel, the beard, DK? I think it's time to nail down a nickname for Dallas Keuchel, because it looks like we might be using for a long time at this rate. Dallas Keuchel faced a total of 30 batters today, and retired 21 of the last 22 batters he faced. He was one out away in his previous outing from having three straight complete games. Keuchel is 4-1 in the month of May with a 1.79 ERA, 31 strikeouts, and four walks. How far Keuchel has come since starting in the bullpen in 2013 to now.

Three of the four hits for the Mariners against Keuchel came in the 2nd inning. Mike Zunio, Michael Saunders, and Cole Gillespie strung together three straight singles to score the M's lone run. Seattle's only other hit came in the seven off the bat of Kyle Seager, but he was erased as Mike Zunino grounded into a double play. Keuchel would strike out six Mariners and walk zero in the game. Everything was going right for Keuchel. Even when he booted a ball in the ninth, it ended going straight to the first baseman Jesus Guzman on the fly.

The Astros collected 11 hits for the twelfth time this season. Two of those hits left the yard, George Springer and Marc Krauss each hit a two-run home run. This was the third straight game with a home run for George Springer. Evan Drellich notes thats -

All around a great win for the Astros. The Astros head east to the Kansas City to face the Royals for three games. Scott Feldman faces Yordano Ventura in game one on Monday.
