Keuchel Dominates, Astros Win Again

Dallas Keuchel delivers another standout performance as Astros defeat Orioles 5-2.

The Astros kicked off Memorial Day Weekend with their third straight victory, defeating the Baltimore Orioles 5-2.

The Astros got the scoring started in the first, as Jose Altuve doubled over the center fielder's head to score George Springer from first.

Springer showed some serious hustle on the play, flying around third and coming into home with a head-first slide.
