The Astros sweep of the Texas Rangers has the winning streak at 10.

The Houston Astros could not have drawn out a better road trip than what they have had thus far.

They are a perfect 6-0 on the trip scoring 60 runs while allowing 24, but most importantly expanding their lead an additional 3.5 games in the AL West.

Sunday’s game was yet another offensive demonstration on how dominant and selfless this team is.

The scoring started off with a leadoff home run from George Springer, his sixth of the season.

Carlos Beltran would hit a double flipping spots with Evan Gattis, giving the Astros the early 2-0 lead.

In the second inning, Springer would bring in his second RBI in the form of a single to right field scoring Yuli Gurriel, 3-0 Astros.

Carlos Correa would blast a 440-foot home run to deep center field, in the 3rd, to extend the lead to four on his 11th home run of the season. Gurriel hit a sacrifice fly to right field scoring Beltran, 5-0 Astros.

In the 4th, Springer would hit his second home run of the game, 16th of the season, to left-center field driving in his third RBI of the game, 6-0 Astros.

In the 5th inning, Gurriel would join in on the home run festivities by hitting one to left field, his fifth of the season, 7-0 Astros.

In the bottom of the inning Rougned Odor with hit his eighth home run to put the Rangers on the scoreboard, 7-1 Astros.

Bottom of the 6th Joey Gallo singled to center field scoring Elvis Andrus from second, 7-2 Astros.

“This team continues to show up every single day with a great will to win, and we take the aggressive approach and have done a lot of damage,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said.

Brad Peacock won his third game, first as a starter, going six innings allowing four hits and two runs while striking out nine.

Martin Perez would get the loss, giving up six runs in 3 2/3 innings.
