But the story of the night was Dallas Keuchel who went 7 scoreless , only giving up 3 hits and striking out 4. Former Indian Tony Sipp pitched a scoreless 8th with Luke Gregerson picking up his first save of the year. Jose Altuve and George Springer rallied the Astros in the sixth giving them the lead for good with an added insurance run on a sacrifice fly by Jake Marisnick which scored Jed Lowrie.
The return of Klubot: Corey Kluber may have lost the game, but he was outstanding. He showed that last year was no fluke and that the best may be yet to come in 2015.
Up next: The Indians and Astros meet again on Wednesday when Carlos Carrasco goes to the hill against right hander Scott Feldman.
