Yuli Gurriel hit a grand slam and Jose Altuve homered and drove in three runs as Houston overcame a slow start to beat the Miami Marlins 7-2 Monday night.
Lance McCullers pitched six scoreless innings, and Jose Altuve slugged four extra-base hits to lead the Houston Astros to a 3-0 win over the Miami Marlins on Wednesday afternoon at Marlins Park. Houston just outscored the last-place Marlins 22-4 in a three-game sweep that completed a 1-8 homestand and left Miami with 17 losses in the past 21 games. "It's my fault we lost the game".
"One of our big goals was to pitch against each other one time (in the major leagues)".
McCullers (4-1), wearing "16" on his cleats as a tribute to the late Jose Fernandez, allowed three hits and two walks.
Houston RHP Michael Feliz has struck out 13 while allowing one run in seven innings over his past six appearances.
Jake Marisnick tripled his season RBI total to six with a pair of two-run homers against his former team, both caroming off the home run sculpture at Marlins Park. Mathis' two-run shot also came against Robles, hit hard for the second consecutive outing after a strong start to the season. With one out, Altuve ripped a double down the third-base line that bounced over the glove of Derek Dietrich, scoring Springer and giving Houston a 1-0 lead.

The channel also broadcast an audio conversation between Sridevi and late Sunanda Pushkar. A Republic employee tweeted what he said was Goswami reaction.
The right-hander took a 6-1 lead into the sixth, but Edwin Encarnacion broke an 0-for-18 skid with a two-run homer to cap a three-run rally. Alex Bregman hit one in Sunday night's win at Yankee Stadium.
However, Gordon fielded the ball and flipped to rookie shortstop JT Riddle, who didn't have his footwork in order and failed to make the grab.
Altuve was hit on the left hand by a 92 miles per hour fastball from Straily but stayed in the game and contributed a two-run single in the seventh, then hit his sixth homer in the ninth. Astros 3B Marwin Gonzalez extended his hit streak to 11 games. Miami swept a four-game series there a year ago. Miami recalled INF Christian Colon, RHP Brian Ellington and RHP Odrisamer Despaigne from Triple-A New Orleans.
Before the game, the Marlins placed RHP Junichi Tazawa on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to May 16 with rib cartilage inflammation, and designated Mike Aviles for assignment.
