Brian McCann's two-run homer in the seventh gave the Astros all the offense they would need in their 3-1 win over the Indians at Minute Maid Park. Lance McCullers was lights out, tossing seven shutout, one-hit innings, with eight strikeouts on his way to 6-and-2. Ken Giles got the final two outs for his eighth save. Carlos Carrasco took the tough-luck loss, giving up three runs and pitching into the eighth. Edwin Encarnacion had the RBI for Cleveland, which dropped back under .500 through 45 games after losing two-of-three in the series. The 'Stros are 30-and-18.
