Carter's 2 HRs, 5 RBIs lead Astros over Twins 10-4

August 13, 2014
Associated Press

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 (1-5).

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 (5-9) allowed four hits and a run in six innings for the win.
