Royals End Skid, Shut Out Astros


The Royals snapped a season-worst nine-game losing streak with a 1-0 victory over the Astros in Houston. Danny Duffy and three relievers combined on a two-hitter.  Tim Hill worked a spotless ninth for his first career save. Rosell Herrera delivered a RBI-triple in the ninth and went over the fence to  rob Alex Bregman of a homer in the eighth.   Yuli Gurriel and George  Springer grounded into double plays with the bases loaded to end the  Houston sixth and seventh innings.  Dallas Keuchel pitched  six scoreless innings in a no-decision.  Ken Giles picked up the loss.
