George Springer gets first hit 'out of the way' in debut
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Astros outfielder George Springer made his much-anticipated MLB debut during Wednesday's 6-4 loss in 11 innings to the Royals. 

Springer, who hit second for Houston, connected for his first career major-league hit in his second at-bat. It was an infield single.

"We're glad he got it out of the way the first day," manager Bo Porter said, per MLB.com. "It's good to have him in the lineup. There's definitely some things that could happen when he's on the baseball field, the attention that he draws on the basepaths, it will give the hitters that are hitting behind him some pitches to hit as well, but it was good to see him get that first one out of the way."

Springer scored one batter after his first hit as Jason Castro connected for a two-run homer. Springer went 1 for 5 with one walk, two strikeouts and one caught stealing in his debut.

"I didn't necessarily hit it hard, and now I can go play from there and develop and have fun," Springer said.

Astros designated hitter Marc Krauss hit his first home run Wednesday against the Royals.

Krauss finished the game 2 for 4, with one run scored and two RBI.

Bullpen lets Dallas Keuchel down in extra-innings loss
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Astros starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel pitched well enough to win Wednesday against the Royals, but the bullpen couldn't hold onto his lead in a 6-4 loss.

Keuchel allowed just two runs in six innings of work for his second quality start in a row, and he left the game holding on to a 4-2 lead. He fell behind early on a second-inning solo home run, but limited the damage to just the two runs on six hits and a walk, while striking out five barters.

Keuchel is just 1-1 despite holding a 3.50 ERA after three starts. He will go for his second win in his next start, set for Monday in Seattle.
