Four relievers protect McHugh as Astros top White Sox

(TSX / STATS) -- HOUSTON -- Jose Altuve matched his career high for home runs, and a four-man bullpen turned in an exceptional performance in the Houston Astros' 3-1 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night at Minute Maid Park.

Altuve smacked an opposite-field homer off White Sox right-hander Lucas Giolito (2-3) with one out in the fourth inning, pulling the Astros even at 1-1 with his 24th dinger. Altuve hit 24 home runs last season en route to a third-place finish in the American League MVP race.

Three batters later, Houston (92-58) moved ahead for good when Alex Bregman followed a Marwin Gonzalez single with a double to the left-center-field gap. Gonzalez scored from first on the hit.
