Astros 3, Orioles 1

HOUSTON — George Springer hit a tiebreaking two-run homer in the seventh and the Astros won their sixth straight. Springer's shot off Preston Guilmet extended his hitting streak to 11 games and was his seventh homer in his last seven games. Springer's 10 home runs in May extended his Astros rookie record and tied him for the third most home runs by a rookie in May with Jose Canseco, Wally Joyner and Walt Dropo. Mark McGwire set the May rookie record with 15 in 1987. Brad Peacock, scratched from his start May 24 with forearm soreness, went six innings for the fifth straight start.
