Royals-Astros Preview

(AP) -- Dallas Keuchel has leveled out some after a six-start stretch that bordered on incredible to begin the season, but opponents still haven't done much to his stellar home numbers.

Nearly all of the balancing has happened on the road, and the left-hander has a shot at pitching the Houston Astros to a series win over the AL-leading Kansas City Royals on Tuesday night at Minute Maid Park.

Keuchel (9-3, 2.17 ERA) is coming off his third complete game and second shutout of the season, surrendering six hits while striking out a career-high 12 in Thursday's 4-0 home win over the New York Yankees.
