2000 - Chris Truby drives in five runs while Moises Alou plates four to pace a 16-7 massacre of the Pirates. Both go deep in the contest. Truby also adds a double and a triple. Brian Powell wins in relief.
1998 - Houston splits a doubleheader with the Mets, taking the opener in twelve innings, 6-5, for their record 97th win of the season. They lose the nightcap, 8-4. Houston wins the N.L. Central crown but the champagne is a little stale. The Astros "back in" to the title when the Cubs lose.
1992 - Jeff Bagwell drills a three-run blast off Steve Reed in the bottom of the 11th to slay the Giants, 9-6. It's Bagwell's fifth hit of the night. Earlier, Steve Finley had taken San Francisco closer Rod Beck deep in the ninth to send the match to extra innings.
1985 - Glenn Davis blasts a solo shot in the bottom of the eighth off Craig Lefferts for a 2-1 victory over San Diego. Jose Cruz notches the 2,000th hit of his career. Meanwhile, Joe Niekro is dealt to the New York Yankees for pitcher Jim Deshaies and two other prospects.
1963 - The Colts surrender just seven hits in sweeping a twinbill from the Mets, 5-4 and 5-0. Turk Farrell goes the distance on four hits in the opener while fanning eleven. Chris Zachary and Hal Woodeshick combine for a three-hit shutout in the nightcap. Teenager Rusty Staub and Johnny Weekly go deep in the second game.

Houston Astros recap - 09/15/14 - Keuchel Cools Off Hot Halos, 6-1
Keuchel Cools Off Hot Halos, 6-1

Corporan consults with Keuchel
(c) Associated Press
Before Sunday, the last team to beat the Angels of Anaheim was the Houston Astros. Back on September 3rd. Ten wins later, the Astros also ended the Angels' streak with a 6-1 series closer in Anaheim where Dallas Keuchel claimed his long-awaited 11th win of the season.

Keuchel flirted with a no-hitter into the seventh inning before giving up a one-out single to Mike Trout. Keuchel was removed in the eighth after giving up two more hits but the Astros had already done their scoring by that point. Jose Veras and Tony Sipp finished it out.

Gregorio Petit shocked most of the 35,000 in attendance with a three-run homer in the second off Hector Santiago who allowed five hits and five walks and was pulled in the third inning. After that, Mike Scioscia emptied the bullpen using six relievers.

Robbie Grossman ripped a two-run single in the fifth and Jake Marisnick, who led the offense with three hits, added an RBI single in the sixth to complete Houston's scoring.

As he did in the first two games of the series, Jose Altuve slapped two hits and now sits at 206 for the season. Carlos Corporan also walked three times and scored twice.

Houston was 10-9 against the Angels in 2013. Despite Sunday's victory, the Astros lost the 2014 season series, seven wins to twelve.

The Astros return home after the 5-4 West Coast road trip against playoff contenders and will make their final appearance at Minute Maid this season with a seven-game homestand. First is a four-game set against the Cleveland Indians which begins Monday night with a 7:10 Central tip-off. Collin McHugh (9-9) looks to reach double digits in the win column as he faces righthander Zach McAllister (3-6) who was recalled from AAA Columbus to make the start.

With 66 wins, the prospect of a 70-win season appears squarely in sight.
