Astros escape cellar with 8-4 win, sweep at Texas

Posted: Updated:
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Robbie Grossman snapped an 0-for-28 slide with a career-high four hits and the Houston Astros climbed out of last place in the AL West, completing a three-game sweep with an 8-4 victory over All-Star pitcher Yu Darvish and the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night.

Grossman and rookie George Springer homered for the Astros, who moved into fourth place by a percentage point over slumping Texas.

Dallas Keuchel (9-5), one of five candidates for the final spot on the AL All-Star team, allowed four runs and eight hits over 6 2-3 innings.

The Rangers lost for the 10th time in 11 games and have dropped 18 of 21. At 38-53, their .418 winning percentage is the worst in the majors -- just behind Arizona and Houston, both 39-54 for a .419 mark.
