ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Lance McCullers tossed seven strong innings and the Houston Astros capped off a sweep over the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, 5-2.
It marked the second straight quality start for McCullers, who is now 4-1 in seven starts since returning from an injury in mid-August.
Martin Maldonado and Kyle Tucker both went deep for Houston, but Jose Altuve was forced to exit early after being hit by a pitch.
He’s expected to be out for Thursday when the Astros visit the Baltimore Orioles at 6 p.m.
