HOUSTON (AP) - Chris Carter homered twice and tied a career high with five RBIs to lead the Houston Astros over the Minnesota Twins 10-4 on Tuesday night.

HOUSTON (AP) - Chris Carter homered twice and tied a career high with five RBIs to lead the Houston Astros over the Minnesota Twins 10-4 on Tuesday night.
     The game was tied in the third inning when Carter's two-out, two-run drive to the Crawford Boxes in left field put Houston up 3-1.
     Carter connected again on his next at-bat with a three-run shot in the fifth which chased Minnesota rookie starter Yohan Pino.
     Carter leads the majors with 15 homers since July 1 and his six multihomer games this season ties a franchise record set by Lance Berkman in 2006. Tuesday was his second multi-homer game in a week and his 28 home runs are third in the American League and just one shy of his total in 2013.
     Collin McHugh allowed four hits and a run in six innings for the win.

     Los Angeles kept pace with Oakland by exploding for seven runs in the sixth inning of a 7-2 triumph against Philadelphia.  
     The Pittsburgh Pirates did the Royals a favor by downing the slumping Detroit Tigers 4-2 as Edinson Volquez gave up two runs and five hits in seven innings.
     The Brewers were 3-0 losers to the Cubs as Anthony Rizzo hit his 26th homer of the season, and first time in 19 games.
     The NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers won for the fifth time in seven games while helping Washington stretch its lead in the NL East.
     The Nats won for the 23rd time in their last 27 games at Citi Field as Michael Taylor hit a two-run homer in his major league debut to spark a 7-1 rout of the New York Mets.
     The Dodgers' division lead has grown to six games following the Giants' fifth straight loss.
     - Seattle was a 6-3 winner against Toronto behind Chris Young, who surrendered only one run and two hits in six innings.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Kristi Toliver scored 20 of her 29 points in the second half Tuesday as the Los Angeles Sparks beat the Minnesota Lynx 71-63 and clinched a playoff spot.
