No slams, but Machado, Padres end Astros’ 8-game win streak

Royals beat slumping Astros 6-5


SAN DIEGO (AP) — Manny Machado hit a pair of RBI singles and scored a run for the San Diego Padres, who beat Houston 4-3 to snap the Astros’ eight-game winning streak. The Padres won their fifth straight but failed to add on to their MLB record of hitting a grand slam in four straight games, which they accomplished in sweeping the Texas Rangers in a four-game, home-and-home series. Eric Hosmer, who had the historic fourth slam on Thursday night, batted with the bases loaded with two outs in the sixth against the Astros and grounded out.
