(HOUSTON) - Houston's offense cooled off on Sunday after the Astros piled up 23 runs and 30 hits combined in their last two games. The Astros managed just three hits and two runs in the series finale against the White Sox, but it was just enough to get a 2-1 win to complete the four-game sweep. Dallas Keuchel pitched seven strong innings, Jose Altuve hit a homer and the Astros manufactured the go-ahead run in the seventh to get the victory. Altuve's solo shot put Houston up 1-0 in the fourth to help the Astros to improve to a season-high 30 games above .500 (61-31). Chicago starter Lucas Giolito (5-8) had retired nine straight after Altuve's home run. He went a season high 7 1/3 innings, but continued to be plagued by a lack of run support. Keuchel (6-8) yielded six hits and a run while walking three to win his third straight decision. Giolito had one of his best starts of the season, allowing three hits and two runs in a career-high 7 1/3 innings. But he continued to be plagued by a lack of run support with the White Sox being shut out in seven of his starts and managing just one run three other times. Hector Rondon struck out two in a perfect ninth for his seventh save. Yoan Moncada singled with no outs in the seventh and Yolmer Sanchez walked. Both players advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Adam Engel before the White Sox tied it on a sacrifice fly by Tim Anderson.
