Astros Storm Past Rangers


Justin Verlander struck out nine across six innings of three-run ball to help the Astros top the Rangers 7-3 in Arlington.  Jose Altuve and  Lance Bregman homered to back Verlander, who picked up the win to  improve his mark to 8-and-2.  Altuve and George Springer drove in  two-runs apiece for Houston.  The Astros have won three-straight to improve to 40-and-25.  Shin-Soo Choo homered  to lead off the bottom-of-the-first to give Texas a short-lived lead.   Doug Fister surrendered four runs in the top-of-the-second and five  across five frames of work to take the loss.
