Astros show why they're the best in blowout win over Braves

Jose Altuve, Josh Reddick and Yuli Gurriel all carried the load, each putting up three hits and four RBIs in the win. He was optioned to the minors on June 24 and made one appearance for Fresno, allowing one hit over seven scoreless innings. The rookie gave up 10 hits and seven runs in 3 1/3 innings. "Mentally, I think he got a break and got a chance to have a good game and walk away from a start feeling pretty good about himself". He had plenty of run support early. The Astros are 5-0 against NL competition this season - including a two-game home sweep of the Braves in May - and have outscored opponents 34-9 in interleague play. "You trust the players in these situations", Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said. "They did that the last time we played them".

The Houston Astros have been the class of the American League through the first half of the season, and they have been just as good against the National League entering Tuesday's interleague series opener at the Atlanta Braves.

Correa, who was elected by fans to start the All-Star Game next Tuesday in Miami, got hurt on a headfirst slide into home in the fourth inning. X-rays were negative and he is listed as day-to-day. Rodriguez, signed as a free agent in January, was injured in a auto accident on Jan. 28 and required surgery to fix his left rotator cuff.


With Morton back in the rotation, Hinch said RHP Lance McCullers will start Thursday at Toronto.

The Braves announced a sellout of 41,456, the biggest crowd yet in their first season at SunTrust Park. Musgrove, with a 6.01 ERA, has allowed 14 homers. Jaime Garcia will start game two and is 2-6 with a 4.35 ERA and 69 strikeouts this season.
