On Tuesday evening the Minnesota Twins and Houston Astros squared off in the second game of their three game series to begin the week.

Joe Ryan was in search of his eighth win this season, but that will have to wait at least one more start. Ryan gave up five runs in four innings of work, ultimately being tagged with the loss.

Alex Bregman began the scoring for Houston with a second inning solo home run. Chas McCormick then hit a two-run homer of his own later in the inning, extending the Astros’ lead to 3-0. In the third inning, Bregman struck again with an RBI single, followed by a Jose Abreu RBI sacrifice fly, making the score 5-0 Houston. Christian Vazquez drove in a run in the fifth inning on a single. The RBI cut the deficit to 5-1, but that score would hold until the game went final.

The Twins and Astros will meet up for their series rubber match on Wednesday night with first pitch set for 7:10 p.m. Louie Varland will be on the mound for Minnesota.
