MLB: Houston 5, Chicago White Sox 4

June 16, 2013 at 5:49 PM   |   Comments

HOUSTON, June 16 (UPI) -- Matt Dominguez drove in three runs to back Dallas Keuchel's strong start Sunday and Houston downed the Chicago White Sox 5-4 for a fourth straight win.

Dominguez got the Astros off to a 3-0 lead with a bases-clearing double in the second inning and Jason Castro added a two-run homer in the seventh, providing some much-needed insurance.

Keuchel (4-3) recorded a fourth consecutive start of allowing two or fewer runs, holding the White Sox to a pair of tallies on four hits over 6 1/3 innings. The left-hander walked two and struck out four.

Jose Veras picked up his 14th save despite allowing a two-run homer to Alejandro De Aza in the ninth.

Chisox starter Hector Santiago (2-5) was touched for three runs on five hits over 5 1/3 frames.

Alexei Ramirez and Jeff Keppinger each provided an RBI for Chicago, which dropped a fourth straight.
