Paxton outduels Keuchel as Mariners stay hot

James Paxton gave up a homer to George Springer leading off the game, but the big left-hander settled in and blanked the Astros for the rest of his six innings, outdueling Dallas Keuchel. Keuchel went the distance for Houston, but the world champs still dropped their third straight. Seattle, meanwhile, won for the fifth time in six games, thanks in part to Nelson Cruz’s first home run since coming off the DL.
