May 8, 2016

HOUSTON (AP) Rookie Tyler White hit two doubles and drove in a run to back up seven solid innings by Collin McHugh, and the Houston Astros got a 5-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.

White, who snapped an 0-for-16 skid on Thursday, had two hits for the second straight game. He put Houston up 1-0 with his double in the second and added a double in the fourth. The Astros added two runs in the third and tacked on two more in the seventh.

McHugh (4-3) allowed five hits and one run for his third straight win.

Jose Altuve had two hits and tied a career-high with three stolen bases on a day the Astros finished with five.


Robinson Cano continued his tear against the Astros with a solo homer in the fourth that gave him five homers and 17 RBIs in seven games against Houston this season.
