Astros hold of Tigers for 6-4 win
(HOUSTON) - To Houston manager Bo Porter, there's no one playing better in the majors right now than Jose Altuve. The Astros second baseman shied away from agreeing with his skipper. Instead, he kept up his impressive show. Altuve got three more hits and stole two bases Sunday as the Astros defeated the Detroit Tigers 6-4. Altuve finished the three-game series 9 for 14 and leads the big leagues with 116 hits. He's already stolen a career-high 36 bases, he swiped second in the first inning, and set a franchise record with a steal in six straight games. Scott Feldman (4-5) allowed two runs in six innings to earn his first win since May 26. Feldman, who snapped a personal three-game losing streak, has allowed three runs or less in each of his last three starts. Matt Dominguez and Carlos Corporan had three hits apiece and L.J. Hose and Jon Singleton each had two RBI's for the Astros, who have won three of their last four. Nick Castellanos had two hits for the Tigers, including a two-run triple in the eighth that cut the Astros' lead to 5-4. J.D. Martinez also had two hits, and Alex Avila hit a solo home run in the fifth. Tigers star Miguel Cabrera was 0 for 13 in the series, while Victor Martinez went 1 for 12. The Astros scored three times in the first against Drew Smyly (4-7).

White Sox shut out Blue Jays
(TORONTO) – Jose Quintana and two relievers gave the Chicago White Sox something they hadn't had all year: a shutout. Quintana won back-to-back starts for the first time this season, Moises Sierra homered and the White Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-0 Sunday for their third straight win. Jose Abreu extended his hitting streak to 14 games with an RBI single as the White Sox posted their first shutout of the season in their 83rd game and won three straight for the first time since May 26-28 against Cleveland. Quintana (5-7) allowed three hits in seven innings, improving to 4-1 with a 1.80 ERA in six starts against the Blue Jays. He walked two and struck out seven. The AL East-leading Blue Jays were blanked for the fifth time this season. Four of those have come in the past 22 games. Toronto went 12-15 in June after going 21-9 in May. Facing his former team for the second time, Blue Jays left-hander Mark Buehrle (10-5) lost for the fourth time in five starts, allowing two runs and six hits in eight innings. He walked two and struck out five. Buehrle lost four straight decisions for first time since dropping four in a row for Miami from June 1-19, 2012. He has not won since June 1 against Kansas City. Buehrle, who spent the first 11 seasons of his career with Chicago, beat the White Sox in Toronto on April 15, 2013.
