Indians shut down Astros

CLEVELAND – Trevor Bauer took a shutout into the seventh and won for the first time since July 18, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 3-1 victory over the Houston Astros on Sunday.

Bauer (5-7) held Houston to four hits and struck out nine. The right-hander was pulled after issuing a leadoff walk.

Cody Allen, the Indians’ fourth pitcher, worked out of ninth-inning trouble for his 17th save. He walked pinch-hitter Chris Carter to start the inning and gave up a one-out single to Jake Marisnick. Jose Altuve, the AL’s leading hitter, singled to load the bases with two outs, but Allen struck out Dexter Fowler to end his 29-pitch outing. Carlos Santana’s sacrifice fly in the third put Cleveland ahead while Lonnie Chisenhall had an RBI single in the fourth. Jose Ramirez added an RBI single in the seventh.
