HOUSTON (AP) – Trevor Bauer pitched seven scoreless innings and Bryan Shaw and Cody Allen completed the four-hitter to help the Cleveland Indians to a 4-0 win over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night for their sixth victory in their past eight games.
Bauer (3-0), who started the season in the bullpen, allowed three hits and struck out seven to extend his winning streak to a career-high three games. He’s been dominant in his career against the Astros and entered the game 3-0 with a 0.90 ERA in three outings against Houston.
Lonnie Chisenhall drove in a run with a double in Cleveland’s two-run second inning. Jason Kipnis tripled in the eighth and scored on a single by Francisco Lindor as the Indians added two runs in the eighth.
