HOUSTON (AP) - George Springer homered twice and made two nifty catches in right field, Colby Rasmus hit a three-run homer and the Houston Astros beat the Colorado Rockies 6-3 Monday night.

Rasmus gave the Astros a 4-0 lead with his shot in the first inning and Springer hit solo home runs in the second and seventh.

Dallas Keuchel (8-2) retired the first 15 Colorado batters. He wound up allowing four hits and left after an RBI double by Nick Hundley pulled the Rockies within 5-3 with two outs in the seventh.

Luke Gregerson allowed one hit in a scoreless ninth for his 16th save.

Chad Bettis (2-2) gave up seven hits and a season-high five runs in five innings.
