Verlander dominates Twins in Astros' 7-1 win

HOUSTON (AP) Justin Verlander pitched eight dominant innings, and Carlos Correa, Michael Brantley and Josh Reddick all homered to lead the Houston Astros to a 7-1 win over the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday night.

Verlander (4-0) retired the first 10 batters before Jorge Polanco crushed a pitch into the second deck in right field in the fourth inning for the lone Twins run. Verlander retired 11 of the last 12 batters he faced.

The right-hander gave up one run and four hits while striking out eight for his seventh-straight win dating back to last season.
