SAN DIEGO (AP) — Dallas Keuchel held San Diego to three hits in eight innings and Colby Rasmus hit a two-run homer to power the Houston Astros to their sixth straight win, 7-2 against the slumping San Diego Padres on Wednesday.

The AL West-leading Astros swept the Padres for the first time since May 8-10, 2009. First-year manager A.J. Hinch had worked in San Diego's front office from September 2010 until just after A.J. Preller was hired as general manager in early August.

Houston outscored San Diego 30-9 and outhit the Padres 36-19.

The Astros head home after an 8-1 West Coast trip gave them the best road record in the majors, 10-2.

The Padres have lost seven of eight, including five of six on this homestand.
