Twins-Astros Preview

(AP) -- Part of the Houston Astros' struggles can be attributed to their two top pitchers not quite matching their impressive 2015 numbers.

One just lost a record home winning streak, and Collin McHugh gets his shot to straighten things out Tuesday night against the visiting Minnesota Twins, who for a second straight game go with an inexperienced starter.

McHugh (2-3, 6.65 ERA), who was 19-7 with a 3.89 ERA in 32 starts a season ago, didn't make it through an inning in his 2016 debut, and after one strong start, he's allowed 11 runs in 14 1/3 innings in his last three. The best of those was Wednesday's 7-4 win in Seattle in which the right-hander gave up two runs in five innings.
