    Chris Carter homered twice, Dallas Keuchel pitched eight strong innings and the Houston Astros beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-1 on Wednesday night. Keuchel threw eight brilliance to beat the Diamondbacks 5-1 in the opener of a two-game interleague set against the Diamondbacks before a crowd of 24,319. Dallas Keuchel continued to roll Wednesday night, and so did the Astros. Astros manager Bo Porter used his postgame news conference on Wednesday to lobby for Dallas Keuchel, his ace left-hander, to be part of the American League All-Star team. Keuchel surrendered only his second home run in his past 10 starts when Aaron Hill took him deep to start the fourth, cutting the Houston lead to 2-1. The Diamondbacks didn't get a hit until Hill led off the fourth with his homer to the Crawford Boxes in left field to cut the lead to 2-1. The Astros took a 1-0 lead in the first inning when George Springer, who sat out the previous two games with a sore knee, singled and scored on a Jason Castro single.
