HOUSTON -- Designated hatter Evan Gattis clobbered two home runs Sunday afternoon, including a tiebreaking shot into the Crawford Boxes in the eighth inning, to send the Astros to their 10th consecutive win, 7-6, and complete a four-game sweep of the Mariners at Minute Maid Park.
At 18-7, the Astros are off to their best start through 25 games in franchise history and have their longest winning streak since a franchise-record 12 games in a row Aug. 27-Sept. 8, 2004. They've won 14 of their last 15 games.
