Altuve helps Astros sweep Royals with 6-5 win

HOUSTON (AP) After the Kansas City Royals tied Wednesday night's game in the seventh inning, manager Ned Yost felt pretty good about his team's chances with a bullpen that has the American League's lowest ERA.

But Kelvin Herrera (1-2) plunked Jose Altuve on the forearm with a pitch and things went downhill from there.

Altuve had three hits and scored the tiebreaking run in the seventh inning to help the Houston Astros complete a three-game sweep of the Royals with a 6-5 victory.
