Twins-Astros Preview

(AP) -- Dallas Keuchel sorely needs a home start, and having it come against the worst team in the AL could certainly help.

After two trying road outings, the reigning Cy Young winner takes on the Minnesota Twins on Monday night with the Houston Astros needing a win to notch consecutive victories for the first time this season and avoid joining the Twins in the cellar.

Keuchel (2-3, 4.41 ERA) has won a franchise-record 17 straight regular-season decisions at home with a 1.47 ERA over 22 starts with the team going 20-2. He hasn't lost in Houston since Aug. 10, 2014, but even Minute Maid Park might not have saved him from his recent efforts.
